I have never been one to play chess because I don’t; really know the game. Chess can be played online and with two players in the real worked with real pieces.

A chess playing geek has invented a new interactive chess table that lets the user play against an online competitor with real game pieces. The table uses a projector =made form a 128 x 56 LCD.

That projector tosses the chessboard and arrows showing where the online opponent is moving their pieces. The arrows allow the player to move the pieces exactly where the online player is doing on his chessboard. The whole thing is pretty cool.
