A chess game controlled by a midi controller and rendered on a webpage with javascript.

Category: Hardware

Seated: By the snack bar


We wanted to make a chess engine with a cool control scheme

What it does

Cool way to control chess game and display valid moves

How we built it

With python and with the stockfish engine to provide an opponent

Challenges we ran into

We originally wanted to train our own chess engine but discovered that generating the data and training a neural network would take well beyond the 24 hours of the hackathon

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Reverse engineering a proprietary MIDI controller's LED API

What we learned

Chess is hard

What's next for Stocksloth

Implement our own engine with a neural network to train it

Built With
