I'm gonna make a digital/robot assisted beer pong table. This way, we can watch the robots play and just drink to it.

Fat and lazy people only! And absolutely no girls... they have cooties.

I'm all for the nerd-tastic digital read outs, but I'd rather play the old fashioned way. Things like this only prove that we are getting lazier as a society. We always want something that can do the work for us so all we have to do is sit there and give the command.

It's just pool, can't you just learn to get better by practice?

Exactly, lazyme. Invest a few hundred dollars in a better webcam and faster machine, perfect the program, make an all in one prototype and attempt to put it on the marker.

Leave it to Georgia Tech to over-complicate (and fail at) a simple game of pool.

basically... just practice.... u dont need some complicated crap software to pot a ball. However its a good idea :):) jus doesnt take into account how hard you hit the ball, how bouncy the cushions are, and how fast the cloth is, and how heavy the balls are.

yeah...or you could learn to do that in your head. but in all seriousness it's a cool concept, but it needs a lot more work.

A good start but more effort needed. Buy a better camera and use a faster machine, for starters.

they should really have like a clear table top with the projector underneath. Also their physiocs engine doesnt seem to be taking into account on how hard they are hitting the ball. I hope they get funding for this. Or have it patented atleast.

This could be the worst thing I have ever seen. A lot of time and effort wasted there for a machine that did not even help make one single shot. Either these guys really suck at pool or that machine really sucks.
