    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...

love the idea - but one thing I would like you to consider. Are robots really better than humans or are they better SPECIALIZED PRECISION TOOLS than humans? Thinking about people as "human tools" is a specialty of certain group of "captains of industry and humanists" that in one point in time reduced people to status of a thing and in the name of kindness created sophisticated euthanasia programs to weed out the "defective" and "undesirable" in order to improve society for the greater good. It's quite worrying to hear the 80 year old slogans ("jokes") in slightly updated form being used by apparently very nice people in public without any embarrassment and shame. Seems like holywood did pretty good job in making everyone to forget the real history. The point I'm making is that once you start reducing people in your mind to tools and meat servos - even as a joke - it's enough of an efficient shortcut and it makes thinking about complex things so much easier so for the brain it would be wasting resources not to stick with it. The academia and "nobility" historically always fell into that trap.

Very smart and cool, but this could never go mainstream in my opinion. By taking out the skill in the game you take out the competitive fun side of the game. You just grab your robot cue and have a simulated game that doesn't reflect on opponents measuring their d*ck sizes in pool. That's what competition is about in any game; who has the better skill set to earn the bragging rights/reward.
