---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of chess set for individuals who are blind or low vision to enjoy the fun, interactive experience of playing chess. The chess set is comprised of textured magnets that hold the pieces in place and indicate the direction of play. The white pieces are composed of matte steel and the black pieces are hardwood, making them identifiable by heat and texture. The magnet strength has been adjusted so the amount of “stick” will indicate what color square a piece is on. TITLE: Play Chess with Your Eyes Closed. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
