I am technician and Go enthusiast and wanted to get some feedback on an idea. I am not sure if only me is missing something like this or if others have the same need - hence this post.
I love OGS but I do not love playing Go on my Laptop so much. Hence, wouldn’t it be nice to play on a real nice wooden board with real stones and still play on OGS? Puzzled?
Let me explain:
What I am thinking of is a real, wooden Go Board that has very tiny LEDs on each crossing to show to you where your (remote OGS) opponent placed a stone and sensors that recognize that you placed a stone. All of this is connected to OGS so that you can play a real haptic Go game without the need to have the physical opponent sitting right next to you.
The heart of this solution would be a Raspberry Pi Mini PC which actually costs ~$30 and has all you need to implement the internet part as well as the control of the LEDs and sensors.
Question: would that be something you would like to play on or is it just a weird wine idea?
Looking forward to your feedback
