This historic event took place on top of the World Trade Center in New York, when Kasparov defended his title against Anand. The title sequence, break bumpers and a computer generated chess board were produced using what was state of the art hardware and software back in 1995.
Each chess piece was fitted with a hidden micro chip transmitting information about its position to the champions chess board installed by Finn Brandt. The signals were relayed to an array of powerful computers where the data was processed and used for controlling a virtual chess board real-time.
The Intel sponsored event was broadcast on television worldwide.
