3D Chess by Ji Lee
The director of Google’s Creative Labs, Ji Lee, has undertaken an interesting project that has seen him redesign the chessboard. In a unique twist to the centuries old game, Li has added varying height levels to a regular chessboard – a change that might not improve the game in any practical sense, but certainly looks cool, and would surely add an interesting and probably exasperating element to the game. From above, the chessboard looks exactly the same as normal, which means the same rules apply as they would in a standard game, but the new board allows players to see the game from a slightly altered perspective.
