    Quick rant here: That has to be one of the most poorly written articles that I have read in a very long time - it truly read like a children`s book...

    Ok now that we`re done with that... the "swimming pool pool table" is quite obviously a fake, and honestly there`s really nothing too remarkable to see here. Yes, the concepts of some of the designs were nice, but the overall disjointedness of the article itself led to a sense of disarray throughout the piece.

    I will say that the one made from what could quite possibly have been car parts (never can trust the `net) was pretty nifty looking, but many of the others - the VW bus, the "Executive"... well, they`re just kinda stupid.

    The Obscura is cool tho.

    The Obscura is the only real impressive thing on the list, check out the youtube video of it, it`s freaking awesome.

    that glass pool table looks cool but you couldnt get any draw (back spin) or follow (forward spin) to take effect because of the low friction between the table and the cueball

    After watching the vid, it says the glass table has a special coating on it to allow it to roll like a regular table. *shrug* maybe you can draw and follow with it

    zombieland "would the ice pool table mess up the physics?"

    Not exactly. Physics is (are?) physics. It would be tough to get any draw or follow on the ball; it would probably just sit there and spin in place. The nice thing is that if the surface gets messed up, you can hit it with a hot clothes iron (mini Zamboni), and when it refreezes, it will be perfectly smooth and level.

    the "pool" one looked very photoshopped, so unless they actually had a plexiglass layer to play on, I`m calling shop until more pics arise (I always see the same angle`d picture).

    also, I hate when people call it a "pool table" its a billiards table.

    Would the glass one have any grip? I mean if you drop a ball would it crack the surface? Plus who wants to see the struts etc underneath?

    The motion sensory type one is cool but I think it`d be distracting.

    I`ve seen the L-Shaped ones in a few places.
