Giant Lego Chessboard

                                                                                                    
Steve Hassenplug, a programmer from Indiana, has designed a giant lego chessboard.  Inspired from  the first Harry Potter movie's the magic chessboard and eight-foot-high knights.  Steve together with his friends designed and built the magical giant board from more than 100,000 Lego pieces.  The chessboard and its pieces are fully controlled by a PC via Bluetooth. 


 The pieces are upto 2 feet tall and consist a motor and wheels enabling to control their moves.  Another interesting feature of Steve's chessboard is that the rook fires a canonball.
