RS&A Kruger Chess set research

The London art agents RS&A commissioned Phelan Associates to look into the feasibility of having an interactive chess set based on the position of the pieces and the type of sound system required to drive it.

Each piece required its own power source and be capable of continuous repeat of voice samples.

The test design to validate the interaction and the technology was completed inhouse and modified for production.© Barbara Kruger/RS&A
