augmented reality laser guides for playing pool

 

 

poolLiveAid, the project by luis sousa, ricardo alves, and J.M.F rodrigues of university of the algarve, portugal
implements an augmented laser guide system for playing snooker capable of ball, cue and table detection, for
easy learning and move prediction. working from a ceiling mounted camera, the system analyzing the borders
of the table, location of the balls, and angle of the pool cue to calculate the aim and direction of the ball.
athough the concept is still in prototyping stages, expect to see more of these types of augmented reality
applications in the near future.
