Luxury Chess Set Talks Trash While you Play

Being rich means you spend as little effort as possible to do anything, no matter the cost. Well if you consider $30,000 a minor dent to your bank account, then consider getting Barbara Kruger's custom chess set. It doesn't make playing the game any easier, but it does do one thing for you: it talks.

As you move each piece into position, the board's built in electronics spit out a corresponding random sound byte. Play enough moves, and you'll get a string of one liners and responses, so that you and your opponent will no longer have to waste a drop of saliva to talk trash at each other. After all, you're above such barbarism, which is why you need a computer to do that.
