MyRobotLab Plays Chess with Patrick?
May 9, 2011
This is a blog post for PM and anyone else interested. I have been doing many updates to mrl, and have begun working on some tutorial videos. Patrick Mccabe and I spoke a couple times regarding hooking up his great chess robot to mrl for a game engine.
Well, he beat me to it and found one to interface with Apple Script - but I still thought it would be fun to try. It did not take me more than 30 mins to find, download, and wrap a chess game engine and gui with mrl.
Once the chessgame is a Service it can be loaded through the gui and integrated with other services. In the video I show how to start it up and have it send a command string to the serial port and gui/logger.
The mrl GUI can be put into an applet so it can be played over the inter tubes too..
