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...

    You are by far one of the smartest people I have ever seen. You understand problem solving, engineering, statistics, math, physics, coding, and so much more. I would love to know how you learned this style of living and learning. I can point out problems, but I am lost when it comes to fixing them. You seem to have such a large wealth of knowledge of how things work so that you are able to create your own inventions. I dont see any limitations with your mind, I would love to support you in any way I can.

    I would say you came to the right conclusion about spin (known as “English”)and strategy ( planning a long series of shots) Not getting stuck “behind the 8-ball” or another ball, with no shot is really the crux of the game! A pro would kick that thing’s _ss , but if you spent another year on it you’d probably win 😅

    This is very cool! But you are stuck at this one table, due to the camera and projector (and compressor I guess). It would be even cooler if you could make it portable, by replacing the camera/projector setup with something like google glasses. Putting the camera and "projector" into the the functions of the glasses. You would "just" have to do some more extreme projection with the image.

    As a former pool hustler this is cool, but 95% of all shots from a good player has English on it to get position on the next shot. Every shotni saw had to be hit without English. I challenged you to make one with perfect position. You don't only have to control the English but how hard the cue hits the cue ball. I actually don't think its possible without some kind of AI

    Great vid but, you should have brought in a legit/local-pro pool player. Pool is way more than just a social activity that most people see it as, these days. It would have been great have someone there to help expand on the knowledge of the game itself since your already using it to build a robot. You might realize that building that robot is actually quicker than developing the physical/mental skill set of a competitive pool player.
