I’m pretty sure everyone already knows this exists, but how cool is that?!
Well, I did not know. Awesome…
Is there a manufacturer link or something? Can this connect to the PC? With a bit of gtp2ogs, this could in the future actually be used to play on OGS ON a physical board, which I believe is something several players wondered about
21st century rocks…
(yeah, I checked the yutube vid as not to be too lazy and it seems, the purchase link will be shared later I guess…)
Reviewer says she will link details where to buy only after she tests it.
I went as far as my googling skills could take me and it’s not a common product, I found something similar in a Chinese site, about 300€ I think.
Edit: A post that roughly translated the Chinese site said their main selling point is it’s much better for kids’ eyes compared to playing weiqi on a PC screen all day
Wow, this is really cool! I wasn’t aware that this existed.
Here is a link to their website. I’m excited for this technology to advance to the point where OGS and others can use these with their sites. I imagine the boards would have to just show where the other player’s stones are instead of being placed by the player for time’s sake.
Or, imagine tiny trapdoors opening and a stone ascending where the other player has put their stone at their end. The possibilities are endless!!!
(I think I’m too excited about this…)
Yes. Minus the guns.
I had no idea this exists! This is truly awesome. I want one!! The idea of being able to use it for a live online match is also amazing. What an amazing time we live in. Thank you for sharing Gia
I’ll keep an eye out for her review as well
Wow! I didn’t have any idea this existed, either! I love it!!!
A year ago I was trying to dream up how to build something like this. This isn’t hugely different, but I never even thought of using “chips” (probably nothing more than a tiny wire) to notify the board of where somebody played.
I wanted to be able to plug it into OGS so I could get the feeling of playing physical boards against people across the world.
Thats great news! Now… ill only need one for each of my correspondence games .
Seriously though… this looks awesome! Great times .
Start a gofundme and beat the competition!!!
Right, we’d need one for each game… And a carousel to manage them!
