Chessbot wins again!

The winners of the PinShape Kids' Toy Design Contest are out, and in first place is... The Chessbot transforming robot chess set. I was rooting for the Modwheels or Cybot, but I guess you can't beat an old classic. For winning I'll be receiving a Cintiq tablet, a copy of ZBrush, credits for professional 3D prints from sculpeo, and a print of the chess bot given to the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, which is pretty cool.

By the way, if you don't have a 3D printer and want a chess bot, but $60 for half a set seems a bit steep, this was designed for home 3D printers. You can always download it for free then go on 3DHubs or MakeXYZ and find a 3D printer near you. I promise I won't get offended.
