Some time ago, I had an idea for an extraordinary board game. The main feature is the absence of visible marks on in. You should not see what it is at the first look. Long time, I had no idea how to realize it, but then I got the answer: LIGHT.
So I created a mesh from black polystyrene on my CNC-milling mashine and add a single LED in each field. Around this mesh I put a stripe of polystyrene with milled numbers and characters, also lighted with LEDs. (Sorry, I forgot to make a picture of it, now it’s glued together.)
The frame around is made from pine wood, and walnut vereen. After gluing the parts together, I milled a rabbat for a sheet of translucend plexiglas. The finish is made with Danish Oil.
Sadly the camera can’t show the real effect of the lights. With your own eyes, you won’t see any hotspots on the fields.
I hope you like the invisible CHESS BOARD.
