Talking chess set might just freak you out


Do you think that playing with a computer opponent when it comes to chess is just too uncanny, since some of the moves which your virtual opponent pulls could prove to be more than human? Well, just to tip things in their favor even more and freak you out (for the weak-hearted), here is the talking chess set from Barbara Kruger. It sure as heck won’t come cheap considering the $30,000 price tag that has been fixed to it, but that is because it has been hand-built, so no two models are the same. Underneath the “hood”, so to speak, lies three integrated computers and 96 microprocessors. All the pieces on board are able to talk interactively as you make your move. Don’t you think that conversation during a match can be unnerving? Something tells me this is a strategy to throw you off balance…
