OpenPool – track those balls!


OpenPool uses the kinect to track the position of every ball on the pool table. Through a projector,mounted above the table, the application can add effects to the balls and the table in real-time. It is open source, so there is a potential for a whole lot of themes. There are currently 3 demos online and the software is in beta stage. The company will be selling a complete solution (1 table, 2 kinects, 1 projector, pocket detectors, collision detector) for $10,000. It is not available for a download just yet but they are signing people up who have $10,000 to fork up for the full solution.
