Meet the Raspberry Turk: a Raspberry Pi driven robot that you can play chess against. The robot can pick up the pieces and play like a regular opponent, so you don’t have to stare at a computer screen to make moves. The robot is open source and coded in Python.
By trying this project, you will learn 3D printing, robotics, and machine learning. The Robot was inspired by The Turk, which was a chess machine built in the 18th century. More info is available here.
