This electronic chess board with magnetically moving pieces is the same bog-standard chess machine you could buy back in Radio Shack back in 1989, right down to the monochrome LCD. And actually, it looks like Rob reviewed one last year, describing its method of independent piece locomotion as "loud and grinding."

Still, props to them for advertising the thing with a flamboyant appearance by the Universal's most mincing monster turned Broadway Star... Erik, the Phantom of the Opera.
