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...

ok so you know how in sci-fi movies they have that like armour that forms around your body I was thinking we can do that with a mini-computer like the pit or pip-boy from the fallout games and like add 3d printer points around the suit (i forgot o mention that it can be a suit) but yeah I think that it can be pretty cool

Seeing it work for the first time accurately gave me so much hope for my own shitty projects. Massive respect for troubleshooting for 5 days. My programs have 1/10th the complexity but I know how it feels to have tried literally (not literally) everything. Keep up the good work!

have you heard of a "Cicret bracelet" scam? Maybe you could make (a simple) one. In fact I would die to see a working one, no matter how simple it may be (phone dial and keyboard, call and messaging function). Solutions already exist in some manner: picoprojectors, ODiN - Virtual Laser Mouse, Laser Projection Keyboards

You have a viable product in front of you but it is not what you think. The camera, projector and computer calculator as a package are the ticket. Having a pool table at a bar (or at home) that can show me the shot to take with a regular pool cue, I might actually learn how to shoot pool (or billiards for those that don’t have deep pockets).

If you perfected this and got the computer to do what you said about looking several moves ahead and figured out the stuff about adding spin and what not, you could find yourself being the best pool player in the world.

There was a robotic pool game in the movie "Silent Running" which could actually set up the table to recreate where the balls were during a previous game. Obviously it was all faked for the movie, but the implied theories were exactly what you're doing here.
