    Okay, but how does it do when it comes to spin and positionning. Anyone who knows half a thing about pool will tell you it`s about the next 4 shots, no the one your`e playing right now.

    Goddamn! It`s called enunciation. was the voice-over a robot, too? I could barely understand her/it at times. I wonder if words are all she swallows.

    I got to see that in person. Its still along way from being done, and is very slow. The problem I guess is accounting for the smallest physics details.

    These people aim at ruining the game of pool now eh ?

    If i were head of the APA I`d ban this from ever being used. Before pool ends up like checkers and chess, Near dead.
