And the global takeover continues: The robotic LEGO chess set

Share

Not only does this gigantor chess set consist of a fleet of earth conquering robots in training, these robots are constructed from LEGOs. Two of the world’s most nefarious enemies are combining forces. (In case you didn’t know, robots are going to take over the world in the not too distant future as are LEGO-built devices judging by the rash of LEGO stuff we’ve seen.)

Stepping back a tad, the Robotic LEGO Chess Set above was constructed using over 100,000 LEGO pieces, measures 12′ x 12′ and cost ~$30,000 to complete. Talk about a science project!

Jokes aside, it’s pretty sweet to see old-school kiddie fun mesh with this new fangled robotics stuff the youngsters seem all infatuated with these days. Yup, there’s a video…jump in…
