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...

    F CF C19 soat oldin
    • Seems to me as if he is improving the world, he's not doing anything that a team of people couldn't already do. Philanthropic carpenters make shelters for the homeless and they get taken down by the city, water filter technology has existed for centuries before flint had their water crisis the state government just isn't using it and curing cancer isn't an engineering problem. Other than inspiring and bringing joy to over a million subscribers by pursuing his passions and recording it for everyone to see, how do you think he should be using his talents?

  • Reverse engineering the outcome shouldn't be impossible, sort of like how alpha zero looks backwards from all possible mates to increase its calculation abilities. This would avoid any situations where you have no moves left and still choose the path with the least likelihood of error cumulatively. If this were a serious venture this could very realistically become functionally unbeatable.
