If you haven’t seen this eat, Korean designer Joonho Sung is trying to build a new table top go set:

Opinions and reactions are mixed. The traditionalist in me is almost offended, the artist in me rather likes shiny things and appreciates striving for a new go aesthetic, and the engineer in me thinks Sung went way over the top with unnecessary and gee-whiz elements.

Could such a device stimulate a Hikaru-like surge in fresh go enthusiasts?

I wish the proponents success but I am confident I will not own one.
