The paper describes an implementation of interface for playing chess game realized through motion detection and object tracking. User hand movements are recorded with a web camera and used to move chess pieces in a given board position. We are primarily concerned with the perception and identification of user movements compared to the chess playing strategies and the game logic. The interpretation of the chessboard position and the computer next moves are performed using standard chess engine. This work contributes to the development of more natural interfaces that enable communication via user motions and gestures instead of standard computer devices.
