Calling Blade Runner...

I have to say that it's monstrous, as a chess enthusiast I say that I wouldn't need it, there's no taste. Of course technological progress will certainly not stop there, we should not be surprised.

Oh yeah, I'm finally thinking about creating an extension to play 2D/3D Chess, an old forgotten project. :)

Yeah but those were just "attempts to proof a concept" more than working interactive chess-boards at all. :)

I mean something like this http://chessboardjs.com/examples#4001 or
http://chessboardjs.com/examples#1004 but more enhanced than that.
