An automatic pool playing robot - how hard could it be? Turns out harder than I thought. It took me quite a while to work through all the difficulties of this project but when it all finally came together is so worth it. To my surprise the most interesting aspect of this project is using the cue to play real games of pool over the internet. Let me know if you think twitch plays billiards would be worthwhile...

Hey, I'm afraid micro center is 2 hours away and I'm scared of driving further than 20 minutes away from where I live and I have google maps set to avoid highways because they freak me out, yet it forces me to use the highway to get there when I plug it in to google maps because that's the only route.

love the channel bro but your inability to visualize the gimbals you have to 3d print caught me off guard. If you're not 'getting it for free' then you're doing the intellectual labor manually and that's more impressive than being a natural. Don't give up.

It would be a "game changer" for an AI to also make the best move from its own perspective, but at the same time making it bad for the other player, like, pocketing a given ball, but also incidentally almost-pocketing another so that it just obstructs that hole for the other player. Maybe the most potential it has it would be on transferring this sort of AI that does all the projection and math to some kind of sneaky "google glass" kind of thing that makes it so that only the person wearing can see all the lines and instructions, to hint how to operate with a normal stick. Sort of the pool version of people somehow getting chess engine assistance on chess championships.

Dude this project alone is literally more elaborate, unique and awesome than my bachelor's and master's thesis together. It incorporates so many topics and requires varied knowledge of so much theory as well as the skill with your tools to actually make it a reality in hardware... it's just insane, even more so how well it worked in the end! Congratulations and my greatest respect for that. Also: can fully relate to the debugging debacle in all points depicted 😂 the headache is crazy but you pushed through it to achieve your goal. I probably would have just gone to do something else for like, half a year, to then find my memory of what the hell I even did back then essentially erased.

At 15:38 you’re so wrong it’s funny. 2 ball is the ball to go for right here all day long. It’s is impossible to make the cueball stop after making the ”harder shot” like you said. And for fun I just want to let everyone know that a real player beats this robot because the robot is putting himself/itself in impossible situations which are impossible to get out from :) / Professional pool player

This is a lazy way of playing pool. I'm sorry but if you wanna get good at something, learn it. "i'm going to build a robot to do it for me", you're just like the guy from futurama's scary door ep where he builds a robot to his stuff for him. Just learn to play pool right.

Someone will look at this device and it will be exactly what they need for some crazy-new robot limb for amputees! Yo could you imagine replacing 2 dudes arms with these and have the computers box the meat suits!? So dope! The future is now, old man!
