Chess Playing Robot

A brilliant 17-years old Iranian Student, Ebrahim Jahandar, constructed a magnetic-force based robot that can play chess against humans. The playing level appears to be basic, but at least you can't fool the machine by making illegal moves! The robot will simply put the pieces back and wait for you to resume according to the rules (see video).

Technical specifications can be found on Ebrahim's personal website.
