Watching the pieces on the chess board in Harry Potter move across the board on verbal commands, one wouldn’t have thought it could be a reality any time soon; but two 22-year-old engineering students based in Mumbai have just created something similar. The duo, Aatur Mehta and Bhavya Gohil, has created a 3D-printed, Internet of Things-based chess set called Chess Automated, which can be connected to the internet through Wi-Fi and accessed through a dedicated app.
