Look at this Fully Playable Chess Set and Board Made Entirely from VHS – This is VHChess! [VIDEO]
Just when you think you’ve VHSeen a thing or two, along comes a wonderfully wild Tapehead creation that presses play on a totally new level. Behold this playable chess set and chess board, completely constructed from VHS tapes. It’s name? They call it VHChess.
Created by by Andrew J. Austin (REDGUTS.COM), with the carpentry wizardry of Robbie Austin, and friends Jakrit and Elizabeth, the VHChess board took 9 months of labor, over 70 Barney VHS tapes, and some real tape-driven teamwork. And now, it’s a radical rewind-inclined reality. Check it out in action below.
We especially love this creative crew’s clever attention to detail. They chose an array of video titles that connect and honor the names of the play pieces. You can see the selection of tapes in the video below. With that move, we call checkmate.
Your move, Tapeheads!
