Phantom is a new robotic chessboard crafted from wood and equipped with a hidden robotic arm that smoothly and efficiently moves the boards chess pieces allowing you to play with other chess players around the world remotely. Created by the team at Wonder Substance the wooden chess pieces will be created by hand in India and the board features an open API. “Direct your troops in battle with fast, responsive voice commands. Just like coming out a fantasy story, the pieces move autonomously as if they are enchanted. Marvel anyone by playing a hands-free chess game”.
