Robochess is the name that Ebrahim Jahandar, an 18 year-old student in Iran, gives to his robot that plays against you on a chessboard. The robot senses the positions of the pieces using magnetic sensors on the bottom of the board; it has a movable hook to pick up the pieces and move them around on the board. The robot can verify your moves as well as its own; once the opponent has made a legal move, it uses its algorithm to determine an appropriate move. The selected piece is then moved to the new cell on the board.
