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...

@Jason Quigley Ok I don't have an engineering degree, so I can't tell. Maybe this is all typical stuff that you learn as an engineer. Being a mathematician, this is hard to imagine for me. My math education was more like diving deep into a few topics and just mathematics and a little bit of physics. Nothing else. But engineering is naturally an interdisciplinary subject I guess, so with that in mind, it makes sense what you say.
SvenGlueckspilz Yıl önce
@Jevon Mao I think he just wanted to say that you need all that other stuff to solve engineering problems and it is sort of implied when you speak of engineering, that you have to do all this other stuff. However I had to list those to make the point that it is a broad variety of knowledge that you need.
Marcello Yıl önce
@Jevon Mao yes... thats what Im saying. "engineering" already entails everything else he listed. If I say im a mathematician, you wouldnt know if I know anything about chemistry or computers, but if I say im an engineer, then its a given that i understand physics to an extent etc.

@Dżarek haha I love that saying because it’s my company’s approach to every project and it’s always “late” 🙄 but honestly this could easily be parallelized for most of it and yeah I do think a 4-5 person team that can work well together would probably be the most efficient, so each person can break off each part and focus/test it (sw, ee, me, oe, and maybe an architect/integration engineer). Because if everyone knew at the start to design a projection system that also has a camera, the mechanical device he makes for the end and how they will control it (microcontroller) this project could definitely be broken into smaller sub modules and would likely be faster - but that preplanning is crucial and why an architect might help accelerate it. It seems like he does that stuff fast but when he says he spends weeks just doing the debug part, that’s where more people drastically decrease the time (plus planning the testing of each part would’ve caught this). That’s a ton of work for one person and I think it’s unrealistic to think one person can match the output of many more unless it is a super simple project (which this really isn’t). It’s not rocket science but it’s also a lot of just elbow grease to grind through all the work/man-hours to make this

Hey, awesome! I've played pool for most of my life (40+ years). I look forward to seeing you apply english, top and draw. Just make sure you shape and roughern the tip of the cue (should be approximately the radius of a nickel). Also, be sure to chalk before your robot attempts to apply any of that spin; otherwise, you'll miscue. Although I know how to clear a table, there's NO WAY I could come up with a robot to do what you did - nice!!!!

Would be so cool if there were two tables built separate from each other. You could take it a step farther than online pool: make your shot at table 1 with your normal stick, table 2 robot stick replicates it. Then your opponent uses their normal cue on table 2 and your robot stick replicates it, etc. The challenge for the robot would not be winning the game, it would be accurately analyzing and replicating a human shot to achieve an identical ball placement. Or you could play against the AI with varying levels of difficulty.

In addition to spin and ball placement for future shots, there is also a concept called a defense where there are no good shots available for you but there is a shot that will leave the ball in the least useful position for the opponent. If the percentage for a defense is significantly higher than your best attempt on your own ball, it should be considered.

@NovusIgnis of course there are plenty of post stating that this isn't that hard to do. there are also plenty of posts claiming the World is Flat or we didn't actually go to the Moon. Anyone can say whatever they want that doesn't mean it's accurate. Do you just believe random things you read? However there have been quite a few engineers, you know people who would actually have experience, saying this is hard to recreate. So you're just going to believe random people who also don't have experience because it matches up with what you believe instead of believing people who you know are actually engineers and would be able to know if this is hard or not

@Agustin Repetto if you're argument is that people can be as smart or smarter than he is, sure. Everyone has potential to develop their skills and intellectual enrichment is most often related to how hard someone works to achieve such. But the claim was that he is just a cut above the rest at was his abilities allow him to do currently. Does someone else have the potential to do similar things? Sure. But nobody else is currently doing things to this scale on their own, or else we would see it.

Pool player here and have to say that build is super cool! For working on what shots to make next, and get into position for them, I would recommend doing that for the game of 9 ball first. In 9 ball the balls must be pocketed in numerical order-ish. You could hit the 3 into the 5 and make it and then make the 3 and then 4 if needed/desired. If you build it to plan for 9 ball, then tweaking it to plan for any ball of the same type (solid or striped like in 8 ball) should be easier I'm guessing. Pattern play would be worth building into it as well for the game of 8 ball. Lots of options to ponder, but slick to see how much goes into what pool players seem to do naturally and mechanically. Finesse is definitely part of the equation too of course.

Once again you and most dismiss in light of i am Azorean or Portuguese and I never met a Brazilian yet who considers me or other Portuguese people as a brother. I don't know why that is, I never liked Brazilians because of that and its them who seemed to not like me first or not care or is blind to the fact that any Brazilian who looks Portuguese IS PORTUGUESE, ITS CALLED POINT OF ORIGIN AND OBVIOUSLY, Portuguese is the native language in Brazil that doesn't mean everyone there is Portuguese either by blood and of course not every white person there is Portuguese even though they may speak it because they have a town there that every year they celebrate the civil war in America because they are remnants of the southern white people that fled America after it went full communist in the late 1800s and built a new home in Brazil and from what I understand that town or community I forgot what it's called, has remained ethnically intact. I'm not sure if English is a derivative of the Germanic language although I know some is but English is mostly from the latin side or post latin romance side. ohhhhh you wanna talk the lat'in......ohhhhh and you wanna talk the french and come in the comment section and talk about a bunch of shit on skype, dude you are a NOBODY dude....you are a CLOWNEY WOWNEY.

@paul couto Nice try but you’re going to need a lot more to satisfy your theory. Why are colors of people even part of the formula? Why does a formula on the basis of existence need to include melanin, a chemical that poses no real difference other than a level of skin protection. It makes no sense. Now here’s my interpretation of existence and where to place God in our lives. There is a movement called “Quantum Activism”. It was developed by Amit Goswami, a theoretical physics professor at the University of Washington. He posits that matter essentially thinks. The idea is thought came before matter and because of that, thought exists in everything. We don’t understand how to communicate with all matter yet but we continually advance that every single day. Think of existence as a cartoon strip. Look specifically at the clouded bubbles 💭 that communicate to the reader what is said in those comic strips? This is what transpires when we learn how to communicate with matter. He ether is actually a cell of “Communal Consciousness”. Essentially a big invisible bubble that collects all knowledge from all matter. As we live our lives, the ledger or communal consciousness cloud, documents all of our thoughts, feelings and experiences. We transmit these individual experiences to the bubble. It collects data from EVERY SINGLE piece of matter in the universe, it reorganizes it and transmits our new reality back to us through shared communal responses. Some of this data is static like a rock communicating its location to the bubble (One way transmission of data) and some is dynamic (two way communication) like your thought I don’t know what I’m talking about. That communicates the level of consciousness to the bubble and it then has the data and positioning to transit back to the individual and aid in creating individual realities out of our shared communal experiences. This is how the universe allows us free will while still controlling the possibilities of outcome. Karma: Think of Karma in reverse. Instead of your actions creating your future what really happens is we transmit our actions to the communal bubble and that bubble compares the data from other individual sources of matter. When you hear someone say “Karma doesn’t exist because I’m a good person and nothing good happens to me” they are dismissing the aspect of community. The real reason why they aren’t living their true life is because the other people in the comic strip creating the dialogue have a preconceived notion about who you are. If they and the others within that sub-bubble (I’ll explain later) have a perspective of you that is not in line with reality, they transmit that data to the BIG BUBBLE of communal consciousness. Think of a man sitting in a restaurant. There are 100 other diners with their own perspective about who you are. Let’s say you know 60 of these people and don’t know any others. The data collected form the 60% will override the data collected from the entire room/bubble. In this scenario, Karma will get the data collected, reconcile the data and spit out a response at the speed of thought to all parties involved in that bubble and it will likely be accurate. Now if you stand up in the room and start pointing at a guy at the other side of the room in a forceful manner, a lot of those people might change their perspective about you and transmit that data a back. To add, what if only the people nearest you can hear you while you’re pointing and being perceived as being violent but you’re actually praising that guy and saying forcefully, “he’s the best person I’ve ever known”. This again will change your Communal Karma and not for the better because half the room sends accurate data and half the room sends false data because they can’t hear you and think you’re being a jerk. This creates a rift and the big bubble can misinterpret our shared reality. It sends back a false signal and this creates consternation within our shared reality and we have to loop back to find our communal reality. Now because of the incorrect data, let’s say 70% think you’re a jerk & 30% realize you’re praising him. Karma thinks you’re a jerk because 70% got it wrong. If Karma was all knowing, Gandhi wouldn’t have had to go on a hunger strike and he could’ve bought a lottery ticket every day and won every day. It’s not. Karma is the communication to and from the ether or communal bubble. When we communicate false data, a karma screws up and we have to loop back to find our center of reality. Currently science would say schools of fish are in sync because of ripples in the water but what if we delved deeper. At the moment of altered motion, the first fish moving sends a signal to the big bubble telling it the fishes position and it’s future intended movement. In the speed of thought the big bubble collect this data and transmits it to every other fish in the school. Now they know where the lead fish is even if they are in the back of the school and they under his future intentions. Because of this data dissemination they can all move as one unit. Now how does God fit in. You seem to love the God of Shiva and I would whole heartedly agree chaos is necessary but what is misunderstood is this mechanism reigns in chaos and we have controlled chaos. There is a range of possibilities within infinity when looking at reality so chaos has to be controlled, if not, nothing would form. Chaos is a preconceived notion of variation and uncertainty. It was planned by the thought that existed before matter so it is controlled by communal consciousness to a degree. That control is GOD, we just need to redefine God and our communal consciousness will create that reality. If we get it wrong, we will loop back (not in time) and we will try again. So what does that mean. It means we are God because we are thought and our communal communication creates reality so currently we are creating God

Great software! I see bright future in the software for the game. In teaching beginners and also in developing more advance computer game, with VR or even AR. Not so much on the cue though, as such tool would render all biomechanical skilled game useless.

You could sell the algorithm to professional players so they can train against a worthy opponent, in case you haven´t done so. If the pool stick were mounted on a robotic arm, it could play without a person having to carry it. A way I can think of doing it is by drawing a colored line around the table so the robot would know what path to follow. Thank you for sharing this videos. It is very encouraging and insightful. I hope one day I can dedicate myself to something similar.

How did you work through image distortion? I got camera looking at projection from different angles and I'm tring to find the best way to convert the displayed screen into X,Y coordinates. I can display a chess board over the screen, and try to convert it that way to some rectangle. I noticed that you have written your own math, but any usefull libraries/sources you based this on?
