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...

As mark rober would say: “I’m bad at pool, but I’m good at engineering. Which means that I’m actually good at pool”

As an engineer I am amazed by how many disciplines this spans. You truly are doing work that a company would take months to do.

Nobody's talking about how the first thing he projected onto the pool table is the Wikipedia page for "Florida Man" at 7:44

I have no problem admitting this guy is much smarter than I.

The way you were able to use the projector to line up your manual shots alone would be a great product to help people train. I would definitely buy it. 👍

When are you going to show the time stopping machine? because there's no way that you can build this in this amount of time. I'll go and pick up my jaw from the floor. Thanks.

Imagine he makes a pair of glasses that does this but only he can see were he needs to hit from the glasses

I love this guy, let’s build the cheats for the game before building the game itself.

Meat Servo has to be the best name ever! This is a really cool idea, and I can't wait to see what adding English to the shot will do. Plus, getting to watch your frustration evolve into victory while doing that will be so worth the wait!

My latest favorite channel! There’s so much about your videos that make them cool. Your thought process, problem solving, exploring outside the 3d grid and your sense of humor all synergistically amount to an amazing and entertaining adventure but what really sets it apart and boosts it beyond anything somewhat similar is your Wife’s involvement. What a brilliant Alloy! Great stuff!
