New Technology Basically Allows You to Cheat While Playing Pool

“Pool Live Aid” is a software project designed to assist unskilled pool players by predicting the trajectories of their shots.

First, the system identifies the cue ball and places a circle around it. It also detects your pool cue to determine where it’s pointing in reference to the ball, then maps out your upcoming shot.

While you wouldn’t want this activated for every shot of every game, it could serve as a teaching tool for amateur players and give them insight and confidence in their ability to play the game.

We, the terrible pool players, salute "Pool Live Aid."
