Space is usually considered infinitely divisible given any two positions, there is always a position halfway between. But in a recent study aimed at developing ultra-fast transistors using graphene, the researchers from the UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy and the California NanoSystems Institute show that dividing space into discrete locations, like a chessboard, may explain how point-like electrons, which have no finite radius, manage to carry their intrinsic angular momentum, or spin.

A chess board is a well defined space with well defined movements possible...space as we know is infinite/uncharted area..so i guess both are radically different..
