Projector Digitally Aligns Your Billiard Shots in Real Time

A team of students from the University of the Algarve in Portugal designed a projector, called PoolLiveAid, that creates real-time light predictions of billiard shots — sort of like a “digital cheat code” for pool. The projector hangs above the table and analyzes the position of the billiard ball, then detects lines that correspond to it in relation to the cue, which it shines onto the table.
