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...

  • So I got and idea for you, a while back I've read an article about some japanese robot which would predict the outcome of rock paper scissors and always win. I think that would be an awesome project for human robot augmentation, but it would be the bestiet if it could be an app.

  • Great work!!! Have you considered selling your system for pool table projection and path calculations? This is very similar to ICS which sells for hundreds of dollars. I am a pool player and software eng and would love to be able to project ball position and shot paths (I don't really want/need the auto pool stick though). Being a programmer, I can definitely appreciate the effort it took you on the software. Again, Wow!!!!

  • If you took this general program and put it on line, tweaked it a bit, you could have a site where a user could put a bunch of balls on the table, put the cue ball in a spot, and then have the program map each shot of a run out. This could be a phenomenal teaching tool. People could reenact something that happened in a game, did I take the right shot, what did I do wrong kind of scenario. Further, for those with less imagination, someone could take an object ball and the cue ball and ask the computer to give them all the potential ways to make that object ball in a particular pocket. Or really make that object ball in any pocket. Where exactly to hit the cue ball off the rail on a kick shot or bank shot for instance. Of course it won't be perfect because tables play differently but for new players or even for intermediate players watching a computer layout shot patterns would be pretty damn cool and educationally beneficial. And if you ever took the time to add in English and draw run shots.... Damn! I got to get you some money. Lol

  • I almost and do get mad watching your videos, and all it releases into is reigniting my passion for .... What you do (electronics, math, prototyping, engineering, etc) . I wish there was just a list of thick books to read in order to get to this point, there probably is but intimately there is implied evolutionary pressure in the guise of video that sways me to proceed with no order and into the deep and then call shark because I bleed, when there is the the sanity of inching towards a better way to get to where I'd like to be. Anyone else here just scrolling through comments?

  • The shot selection algorithm should obviously be based on where you want the cue ball to be. That would severely narrow down the possible shots to consider. There is no best way to win a game of pool. There are many different possible orders in which the necessary balls can be potted. The point being that you only need to work out A way to win as opposed to THE way to win. hope that made sense :) Obviously if you want to win in one shot you would also need to calculate shots that pot balls and also maneuver balls from non potable positions into potable ones
