Star Wars fans will know all about Holochess. The game, played by C-3PO and Chewbacca, has holographic chess pieces smash each other up.

This build, by Jim Shima at Hyperdynelabs, is a table that looks just like the Star Wars prop.

The fun doesn’t just stop there. A recent upgrade to the build has turned it into a jukebox with a moving surface. So now it blasts out your favourite music.

Inside is a Raspberry Pi. So we just had to take a closer look.

Sure, it might be a bit random to have a jukebox that looks like a Star Wars prop. But it’s random in a cool way. And we love the build quality.

“It all started with a very detailed and realistic replica of a Holochess Table made by Jim Shima’s friend,” reports Hackaday. “A lot of time and care went into the prop, and [Jim] was determined not to alter the look while installing the media player gear, consisting of a Raspberry Pi running OSMC and a 160-watt power amp.”
