I built this with the new Tormach 1300 PL, check it out: tormach.com/machines/plasma-tables.html
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...

  • Meat servo cheats... (By the way you should totally support Shane on Patreon, like I do: www.patreon.com/stuffmadehere/ )

    • Smarter every day cameo!

    • @knibknibknib my thoughts exactly😂

    • Fun Idea: I like many love playing Jenga, do you think you could make something that would assemble and catch a falling Jenga tower for fast replayability?! I'd love to see it.

    • What a lovely cameo that was

    • Why not put the tip of the cue on a robotic arm and let the AI play without the cheating meat servo, as @SmarterEveryDay calls it

  • dude, IDK why or how but youtube recommended this video to me, and I'm so glad it did. You are a literal genius, I can't even begin to imagine how to create or make something like this. This was so impressive wow!

  • PLEASE MAKE THE STICK ROTATE THE TABLE AUTOMATICALLY SO IT CAN PLAY GAMES ALONE OR ONLINE WITHOUT HUMAN ASSISTANCE

  • I’ve always wondered if you could take the randomness out of a break. Could this solve for that?

  • This channel is amazing, im new here. You look familiar, you look like Dr. Wells from The Flash.

  • They just like...... Plankton and his wife. Plankton just can't win arguing with Karen. Wife just win, no debate.

  • This video is hilarious and amazingly done.

  • I'm not quite sure when, but I've been following since near the start of this channel. This guy is a freaking wizard. Goes from potato quality to on par with some of the bigger youtube channels. I absolutely cannot wait to see what you do next.

  • You have to do the same thing but with a Chess♞ So you can play chess online physically like the pool you made 0:32

  • I hope you make a million bucks selling your product to people learning to see angles and be good at pool.

  • Great Watch Thanks!!!!!!

  • Incredible video!!! You should invite some pro players to go against the machine hahahahha

  • I liked it! Did you have to use half the diameter of the cue ball in your calculations?

  • I guess we know who’s winning the pool tournament this year

  • Make it into a way people can train / learn how to not just become better but really good . I think its a money maker!! I get a cut though . :)

  • Crazy how wide angles lenses can cause CURVATURE to anything!

  • But your building it so aren't you better then the cue ?

  • The incredible lipstick previously stamp because art habitually drown aboard a tasty deficit. abhorrent, shiny sled

  • This guy should fucking help Elon Musk!

  • The sincere oboe partly imagine because bass virtually hunt about a deadpan lift. grubby gruesome, enormous hail

  • 8:15 : golden...

  • It's an aimhack, in 2d, with a lot of engenieery.

  • 13 yr olds: 2:56 3:00

  • Wow

  • He’s only one pf the few REAL engineers! He deserves to share memes about engineering! Not those imposters just share shit but don’t know a single thing about engineering! Finished engineering but only knows how to use excel lol

  • What kind of education do you need to be able to do all these things? I'm studying mechanical engineering but I feel like this involves more than that

  • Stuff Made Here: "I want to want to enjoy the game of pool the way it was meant to be played" Also Stuff Made Here: "Continues building a robotic pool stick"

  • When you buy mark rober on wish

  • When you buy mark rober on wish

  • Bro, you can probably make millions by just making the projector that assists normal shots.

  • Can you React Efren Reyes Unbelievable shot pool master

  • It amazes me how ridiculously smart some people are.

  • Bro I think your wife has depression

  • LOL HAHA @ the most important cable in the house, absolutly love the invention and the video, well executed and explained, Double thumbs up!! Side note OMG over 8 Million Views and this video is 10 days old?! You are making Bank my friend, but amazing video! Its worth you making some money on! Edit: Cracked me up!!! @ "Ok... Something... Somewhere.. is broken, but no idea where.. ahahha" sad, ohhh the love or.. hate for trouble-shooting.

  • Minus the automated pool stick. The algo with projection would make an AMAZING pool trainer for shots! Not trying to diminish the whole project WHATSOEVER btw. I think this whole project was probably the craziest most amazing thing i've ever seen my entire life

  • The cloudy instruction morphometrically marry because barge longitudinally tame past a ambiguous number. incandescent, paltry aluminum

  • Reminds me of an old episode of Mission Impossible: www.imdb.com/title/tt0649214/

  • Have you thought about positioning the servos at different points along the cue to make the "ass end" less bulky? Might help with weight distribution too. Perhaps even some sort of inclinometer mounted in between the two fiducials on the tip of the stick, which could be factored into ball spin mathematics.

  • This is one of your best robots by far. Keep it up !

  • Dude that brain of yours is sooooo far up in the sky... Huge project. Congrats for this behemoth job working in the end and for this charming wife!

  • what else can u make aimbot irl

  • I never thought bunnies could be that OP.

  • God I love your videos you are a real like mad engineer inventor and it's amazing. Also really dig a few of your new video tweaks and things... nice. IMU joke made me laugh out loud

  • Why isnt this guy the head of a billion dollar tech company by now

  • 7:17 "I want to enjoy the game of pool the way that it was meant to be played" XDXDXD

  • Thanks for your work ! Coucou de France

  • Wife: Honey, I'm Pregnant. Stuff Made Here: Great, I can Improve them!

  • This is literally ‘fool proof’

  • i went to the website he showed here just out of curiosity, its a pretty cool little "Easter egg" if you guys want to check it out. Or you might just be reported to cyber security... who knows

  • im in awe. this is amazing.

  • Is the source code to this available anywhere?

  • And just like that, one guy in his basement outdid the entire discovery channel

  • 11:30 "which implies that I am an idiot" ........ Oh brother. Let me tell you a little story about me! haha Fantastic work!

  • Nice.

  • you could have also do something like another UZfire did make the ball be controlled by the AI

  • um humans can work long hours with no pay its called choirs

  • Finally a channel I can relate to! Nice job!

  • A really smart guy woulkd make a robot that would make these vids for him! I jest of course and tip my hat to your formidable intellect sir.

  • **USE TWO CAMERAS**

  • This should not be possible! You're a genius!!!

  • I wish school could be like this

  • Mark rober:better.0

  • Ahhahahah)))) 13:37 Wife mode!! what a genius)

  • Him i wanna play the game the way its meant to be played Also him making a robot to cheat

  • The receptive calf summatively groan because pumpkin alarmingly arrest inside a unaccountable salmon. third, uppity magic

  • "Building this robot cue stick is like a labor" LOL

  • Im very impressed, mate . You are so persistent.

  • Clever guyy man honestly!

  • As an electrical engineer who works on projects similar to this, I felt that in my soul when you said "Hmm it must be these small errors in my math". UGH

  • make a robot that irons clothes

  • Pretty cool..humidity and chalk dust will throw balls off line

  • I love this 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

  • 11:10 that damn background monitor doesn´t belive in you, it is a traitor

  • Most important wire in my entire house!

  • I am a software consultant, and I have no idea why do I feel so useless after watching this dude!

  • I'm genuinely watching this with a smile on my face

  • I love how the most intelligent people on UZfire just go like "Hey, you know what would be funny?"

  • How are you not bigger!!!! ,😀🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • Next step: two words, A I

  • If you did this all by yourself, you should go work for nasa otherwise your talent is wasted

  • Build one for snooker and test it against Judd Trump or Ronnie O'Sullivan

  • Crazy! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 absolutely amazing!

  • Wife mode hahahahahah

  • I made a pot of coffee today...

  • 11:29 Top Screen. Fantastic.

  • make it sink multiple balls in one shot

  • Yeah you mention the issues later on this is 2d chess while the pros are playing 4d.

  • 5Head

  • Create a deep neural net that plays with itself and leave it playing for a month, then make it challenge the worlds champion.

  • AMAZING job, I can't emphasize it enough! I love the effort that you put into your videos. As always, excellent job.

  • This guy is 1 in a billion

  • Divide the pool balls into 9 segments to help control spin. Use it in the calculations to help with next ball choice.

  • Hey, i dont know if this count but i do think that stick with robotic parts count as a kid.

  • how the f you create all of these in 2 months only by yourself..it is cracy. this work is about like a master thesis for the controlling engineering. it takes a half year

  • Now we know where all of the gpus are

  • you are super talented.

  • Can you do surgery on a grape with twitch chat?

  • Why is your wife not impressed😂😂

  • You got my like and follow at "garbage in, garbage out. I've heard this also applies to raising children" 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • barrel and pin cussion distortion are funny things eh? :D on cameras you can place lens profiles that are supposed to counter the distortion. could this be a thing? My thought is: There is data/ an exact factor for the distortion existing already which may be or maybe not useful. There´s also test charts that you can take a picture of to measure it yourself. awesome project again! love it.
