The AI Go Set includes a true board, so you can play in person with the feeling of real stones (single-convex). It can act as a timekeeper as well, for tournament play. You can also allow your opponent to photograph a QR code at the end of the game, and they will be able to access the game record. You can also play against remote opponents (or even downloadable apps), while protecting your eyesight from the glare of a computer screen.
The IZIS AI Baduk Board is great for study, with man-versus-machine options against various strengths of AI (Katago, Leela, Golaxy). There is also a cloud database of over 100,000 historical pro and tournament games that you can review, and you can search the database by a player's name to find your favorites.
It will automatically record your games for later study, and even have an AI analyze your moves. There are graded problems that you can do, including Joseki (opening patterns), Semeai (capturing race), Tsume-go (Life & Death), Yose (Engame), and more!
With multicolor LEDs, it has many features like color-coded Move Suggestions and an option of board sizes (9x9 and 13x13 and 19x19). It is great for Live Streaming by simply providing a shareable web link. A WiFi connection to the internet is necessary for all of the board's digital functions, as they rely on the IZIS cloud platform.
This product will be the English version. Some elements may still have Chinese characters, but it is not hard to navigate and these may be translated in a future patch. It is also possible to create or download Apps for this device, but we cannot provide detailed support as BadukClub is only a sales channel for IZIS - we do not produce or service this item.
The board comes with two resin bowls, each with 180 stones, plus another 2 spare stones of each color. These stones are slightly magnetic, so that the board can identify their position on the surface. A wall-plug adapter and 2 charging cables are included for your convenience, please use the adapter so that the board is powered with the correct voltage. Documentation is also included to show the production date and device information, and you can also download the User Manual.
IZIS AI Youtube Channel has many videos to help you get a feel for the board.
