Pool is not a simple game if you are not great at geometry. It takes practice to become perfect at it. PoolLiveAid is a project by Luis Sousa, Ricardo Alves, and J.M.F Rodrigues of University of the Algarve, Portugal that aims to help beginners become pros in this game. It uses ceiling mounted camera to detect the table, location of the cue ball, and angle of the pool cue. It makes anyone look like a genius. More importantly, it could prove very useful for folks who are just getting started with the game.
