Augmented Reality Laser Guide for Pool and Snooker

  • Posted 67 months Ago

PoolLiveAid - a project run by three friends at the University of the Algarve in Portigal - have come up with an augmented reality laser guide system which helps you practice your pool and snooker shots. By detecting the ball, cue, and table using a ceiling mounted camera, the system can analyse the shot you're about to take and allow you to correct your aim using the guides projected down onto the table. Unfortunately for all you keen pool players, the concept is still the prototype stages and it's currently unclear whether the system will be available to buy. Watch the demonstration video below.
