Magnetic Checkers combined wireless charging with mobile phones and use electromagnet technology. When the mobile phone is not charging, the power in the board is supplied to the electromagnet. The electromagnet generates a large magnetic force, and the chess piece can not be moved; when the mobile phone is charged, the power in the chessboard is supplied to the mobile phone, the electromagnet is demagnetized, and the chess piece can be moved.
