An automatic pool playing robot - how hard could it be? Turns out harder than I thought. It took me quite a while to work through all the difficulties of this project but when it all finally came together is so worth it. To my surprise the most interesting aspect of this project is using the cue to play real games of pool over the internet. Let me know if you think twitch plays billiards would be worthwhile...

I honestly wanted to see the pool stick making insane shots in this video, (Longer demonstration of the stick working). I feel like most of it was just explaining the pool stick, and not showing it work.

This is one of the greatest video I've seen since months. The guy is so smart and talented that I can't barely believe what I see. There is many technologies involved here, and how many hours of hard work ? Jesus. If I had a friend like him, I would spent all my free time conceiving stuffs to change the world. YOU SHOULD MAKE A WEBPAGE with all the programs you used, all the softwares (the one with graphs and simulations). How can someone visualize the camera lense deformation like he did, and make the appropriate algorithm (based on maths) to recompose the true image ? You should work with NASA or Elon Musk or Boston Dynamics. Hope you're enjoying life, you diserve it. People like you are so valuable.

sounds like a good idea to just use the software to calculate the shots and just hit it with regular pool sticks. it sure would make a great trainer for people.

Dude that Awsome the Cue was cool but im more intrested in the projection on the pool table can this become a software that i can have a Camera that reads the table and projects the possiable shots on to the table Alone that i can use a Real Cue with ????
Farhan Kheirnia
Farhan Kheirnia Pred 5 dnevi
Dude i love your brain! If u wanna get a boost of viewers i think u should try using this cue against some pro pool players..those who do impossible shots and make videos u know...u compete with them doing those shots and both of u post the video and mention eachother...i think it'll work so good for u...in case u see this comment

It takes a lot a time for most people to just come up with one good idea and try to realize it, he came up with multiple good ideas and achieved all of them in a few weeks just for this one idea.....If that's not genius, I don't know what is lol
Morgan Thunder
Morgan Thunder Pred 5 dnevi
After taking it this far it kind of seems like you have to mount the cue on another large mechanism hanging above the table so that it can place itself anywhere on the table. Then people can really play each other online with no human slave necessary. Do THAT and I MIGHT hit that like button... too much hassle to drag the cursor up there for now.

Bro, 9 ball is where it's at for the predictive technology. Sure, you can do it with 8 ball, or Snooker; but 9 ball would exponentially reduce the mathematical burden on the engine. Because it's literally numerologically dictated. You must hit the lowest numbered ball on the table, the rest is mere subsequence. Just a thought...

Hi Have you put any thoughts on this system to become a teaching aid in the game of pool? I have see a fella in Canada trying to develop a system like this. Talk to the APA Pool league they might be able to help you market this unit.

My wife and I really enjoyed watching this and look forward to watching more this evening. Great plug for Micro Center. Unfortunately, the closest one is 7 hours away so a trip there isn't going to happen until we can get away for a few days. From what I saw of the store on your video, its probably going to take that long for my wife to drag me out of there 😂

once its near completion, you should add a "tip conditioning function" like a small box you can place the tip in before you take the shot to chalk it to the desired amount, this will go great with getting exact "English" and spin control.
