Modern Chess Set

Designed by Yasmin Sethi, this modern chess set “features pieces that ‘magically turn transparent’ when they touch the board.” No word yet on pricing or availability. Click here for first picture in gallery.

The effect works thanks to a board made out of a glass material with embedded LEDs (LightPoints) and chess pieces made from clear glass with the negative shape of a traditional, delicate Staunton chess piece enclosed within it.
