Over at South by Southwest, OpenPool is showing off these pool tables, which use a Kinect to track the movement of the billiard balls and a projector to overlay trippy shapes following how the balls move. Looks neat! Even better, it's open-sourced, so users can upload their own spins on the project and share them around. Might not be as important an effort as, say, saving rare rock art or talking to a doctor, but the Kinect is nothing if not versatile.
We also caught sight of this cool tracking system that points a laser down the barrel of your cue to calculate its geometry. Maybe we can turn out the lights and try out both.
I wonder if this technology could be expanded upon with NASA at shooting down asteroids.
Mmmm, other than my above suggestion, they are basically cheating at the human skill of pool.
I get see this technology, possibly helpful in other things!
I'm not saying this is the greatest invention ever, but it's the greatest invention ever.
Awesome! This could revitalize the entire pool table market: Pool lessons, trick shots, and a new generation of games and special effects. You could even turn an old forgotten pool table into a virtual putt-putt golf course or maze game using pool balls. I could see the smart real estate agents adding this to their homes making an ugly pool table into a virtual game room. it could ba as standard as house staging & baking cookies... great innovation.
