We propose a touch-type Go design that is reinterpreted in a modern way by taking advantage of the restrained beauty of Go and the beauty of blank space. Go stones can be removed via the touchpad and replaced by LEDs with a light touch via the touch screen. At the bottom of the screen, a visual display of the timer duration in seconds reading informs you of real-time game information. Portability, convenience, and usability have been improved through the electronic method. Furthermore, it is possible to play games with online users through the application, and it is possible to play Go games with various users of all ages without boundaries between online and offline.
