2.5D Chess Board

A chess board physically manifests all the available moves
  [vote for,

Chess programs can routinely display all the available moves for a piece.

This idea is about constructing a physical chess board that is able to do the same, perhaps using magnets or physical levers to raise and lower sections of the board, so that when a piece is selected, an actual set of channels is created demonstrating possible moves. Ramps maybe needed for knight moves.

       Would multiple boards + robotic arm + software be considered cheating?

       The board could be underlit; the destination spaces of each possible move would light up in sequence.

       I like it, pulsing lights
