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 need to make a table that automatically returns the pool balls to the correct position. So that when your finished playing, the game resets without any personal input!

  • Wait....can you build a golf swing analyser? on the lines of matching your swing to a computer generated swing? Like an overlay? so you hit a golf shot you like then the computer remembers is and shows it on screen with spots highlighting correct positions? you can then refer to the screen to duplicate the position with subsequent shots?

  • Here's a challenge for you, make a lock which you've done already but make it for a very special key, a lockout key, look it up if you don't know, however they are very easy to bypass, so make a lockout key that's unbeatable, i.e. make the actual key like a normal one with ridges, but its still a lockout key

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).
