Shoot Pool Like A Pro With Real Life Aiming Lines

We’re all pool sharks when playing video games that actually display the imaginary lines to help you pocket the virtual balls, but when it comes to real life billiard, it’s a different story. Well, not anymore. PoolLiveAid is a project by Luis Sousa, Ricardo Alves, and J.M.F Rodrigues of University of the Algarve, Portugal. Using a ceiling mounted camera the detect the location of the ball and the angle of the pool cue on the table, it recreates those virtual aiming lines, and projects them on the table, so you can shoot pool like a pro.
