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...

  • It would be cool if you could program it to hit multiple balls in, in one hit.

  • Just to be obvious this does not count at all its kool but to be clear having a moving tip on a cue makes it unrealistic and not real pool

  • There's one other thing you should put in mind which is where the cue ball is gonna stop, for example you don't wanna pot the right ball and have the cue ball potted too with it cause that would stop you from having another take according to the rules, and also there's other variables to pool, for example how hard or soft are the walls or whatever they call them!

  • I knew instantly what was throwing everything off you should have used a pool player to help you you cant aim center que to the exact hit point the balls are round so the contact point is actually a little off center when your cutting a ball in the que ball is making contact on the edgd of the ball not center i think your a long ways off beating a pro as safety shots are more important than just pocketing balls
