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...

@haythem khrayfi No such thing as an "air hydraulic", hydraulic means Fluid (hydra - hydro), air is pneumatic (pneumo), so the proper terminology is Pneumatic. Just helping!

I thought i can do that if i knew where to start and what are the steps, but when i heard your process of thoughts figuring out where to start from and how you connected all those layers together, i’m simply mind blown, it would take me ages to get that far, subscribed for life.

Well.. It's friday 4 am I'm writting this but.. You said it's 2nd cousin to ray tracing... IMO this is best solution... start with holes since they are constant, find a vector to every single ball from every hole, create a point on other side of ball as a "target" for cue ball and there you have it. No need to find every single relation ( this is classic light calculation not ray tracing).

Thanks a lot for your skills and video. My guess to your minor problems was parallax of the balls above the table seen from the camera. But maybe you compensated for that already. Thank you again for a great video.

Now you have got to make a rail system all the way around the table and automate the positioning of the stick on the table for a true remote implementation!

To those arguing it would have been more efficient to have just practiced actually playing pool... perhaps if your goal is to win a game of pool, but efficiency:production wise, this method has a lot more to show for it than just winning a game of pool.

This man has made $420,000.00 from 93 million views in the last 10 months on you tube at the least. That's ruffly $4,500 every million views is my estimated guess. It may be more but I don't think it's any less. At this point they'll have to pay this young man a million a year to even talk to him about working for them. I admire his talent and his hustle.

Once you get past the strategy part which includes planning ahead, defensive moves and putting spin on the ball, you are ready to market this for people to play at home alone against a computer much like computer chess. Would be a great teaching tool for any level of player.
