Feeling flush and are not quite sure on what to get for your brainy loved one this Christmas? Perhaps you might want to check out Barbara Kruger’s talking chess set. Yes sir, if you think that your home is too quiet for your liking and would like to have a definite conversation piece, this talking chess set is just the ticket. The $30,000 price tag could prove burdensome to most people, but that is because it was lovingly hand-built from scratch, relying on a trio of integrated computers and 96 microprocessors for it to get going. The pieces themselves are able to talk interactively as players make their moves. Creepy if it gets possessed by some sort of sentient techno-spirit, eh? Hopefully it plays better than it talks.
