Is it possible to build a chess computer using BOT120? Yes it is!
See the amazing result: The PICAXE-powered BOT120 uses the line controller to recognize White's movements on a chess board. One white and one black switch (instead of bumpers C.1 and C.3) are the only switches you need to indicate who is moving.
BOT calculates Black's moves and drives them on a big chess board.
The true is: BOT's program consists of some IF-statements in general: If White moves e2-e4 make the black move e7-e5 e.g. BOT has no clue concerning chess. But playing chess with this self programmed robot makes so much fun.
