To beat Professor Gentimis at a game of chess, who is a god
What it does
Computer Vision aided chess so that you can bring online chess games to the real world
How I built it
Tears, lots of them. Also wood and nails and some programming
Challenges I ran into
We had to find a unique way to identify the board. The unique trackers that we used were not very accurate and hard to read so we had to change the markers more than 6 times. Eventually, we found one that worked very well, however that tracker was very sensitive to light, so we used LEDs to get rid of these dark spots and reflection shadows.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
No one accidentally died during the build
What I learned
How to use and open CV and to live off of minimum amounts of sleep while still working
What's next for ChessVision
Add a robotic arm that moves the pieces for the AI. The computer will also give tips and hints to the users.
