    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...

      Honestly, I don't see any way to militarize this in order to ethnically cleanse people with different economic systems and religious beliefs. What's the value in that?

      What if we scale up whatever he was doing with the overhead camera to have a bird eye view of a football field. And then use it for VAR reviews? Feels like it would be much better than the current camera angles VAR is using.

    22. Niels Sahl

      Hi i will say i can beat your robot at any time because my skill set is higher i dont sink the cue ball i allways read the table and deside the mace i have to run before i win with spin , speed bang shot in count i think the robot are only able to do what your skill are at , and differens is its a slight easy'er to play with a skilled player because the skilled player try to put the cue ball in save spots "blind" but beginner player dont think that long and shoot and mess the mace so you have to calulate everytime you miss a shot round and make it harder , do the robot calulate that , then i have a aponrent if not ill say im better then the robot.

    23. Jarrett Dixon

      One thing that’s missing in your pool stick is Bluetooth data transfer for commands for wireless communication

    46. Ali Yasin

      This guy is smart

    47. David Augustine

      I'd love for this guy to build something with Michael Reeves and watch him slowly have a meltdown as he deals with Michael's insanity.

    54. Abd

      Dude this is absolutely incredible

    55. *iTs STill ME* V-i-P

      id still beat you with a real cue

    56. Lafeo 007

      hey I've always been interested in making things like this. But not everything can be learnt from scratch, you need to begin somewhere. Im currently studying electrical engineering but am also interested in design and an array of other things. However, I'd like to know more about who you are! what you studied? How you learn and your process behind being so well equipped with knowledge.

    57. Wes G

      Make it clear the table on the first hit every time

    58. Humanoid Typhoon

      You are the Stephen Hawking of programming

    61. Beech Production

      Sick stuff! But funny thing is I will go straight to wide angle distortion first, I knew it will screw things

    62. Roice Economos

    64. Eldrich Botor

      When he draws/writes on the iPad, what app is he using? I can’t tell besides the “pro” at the top of it

      1. Alvaro Fuentes

        That is not an iPad. Off-camera he took a 20 minute break from the project to build a custom tablet from scratch.

    65. Nica Bogdan Marian

      You're crazy man, nice job! 👍

    66. Adrien Carré

      Does your wife and you matched because smiling is a painfull exercise for both of you ? :p Congrats, this is very impressive and after the video with Dustin, you got my subscription ! :)

    72. Canuckiwi

      I swear this guy could wake up anyday, decide to take over the world, and do it. And probably make a vid explaining how he did it.

    73. Jabu Mutezo

    75. Nguyen Van Thanh

      have u try to use zonepoint

    76. CITH Valentine

      20:34 actually building that is harder than labor.. giving birth isn’t hard.. 1) you have sex 2)you wait 3) you give birth.. you can rape a brain dead female, and she can get pregnant, and give birth.. building that is/was WAY HARDER THAN LABOR

    77. nickunderpar

      I fucking laughed so hard when you screwed into that cable 😂😂😂😂 waiting for it to happen to me one day but ive yet to be that unlucky. I like how you drilled in the dead centre of it too 😂😂😂

    78. C1

      ”It’s also very easy solving this mathematically using linear algebra.” Yes, ofcourse. **cries internally*

      1. Rodrigo

        I’m taking linear algebra in college this semester and I’m really crying lol

    79. Ryan Tidwell

      Ok so I know this is totally unfair but I gotta say it. There are too many people like you with amazing brains doing this super cool crap, but why don't you use those super smarts to make something that actually makes the world a better place? Nobody really needs a robot pool que. The world is broken and people like me are too dumb to fix it. "With great brains comes great responsibility" Its up to people like you guys. Lol. Great video. I clicked the link and entered my email address for microcenter even though I had already google it and there is not a store anywhere near me. I live near Salt Lake City. Tell them to build me a store will ya? :D

    80. Ding Bat

      Mind job. Definitely a mind job! 🤯

    81. Muhammad Rangga

      11:34 no no idiot can make things like that

    82. salvosports

      You have created a learning tool to train someone to beat the likes of Stephen Mizerak. Obviously you are going to manufacture a retailed packaged system and sell it to train ordinary people become master pool players!!!! When you see those customers on TV win an APA championship you can say, "There is my kid, I win too!" Then you can ask them for half the purse! You're rich Biatch!

    83. Dave Nezra Pappas

      Whoot! My man! Hehe look, Dustin had to comment on this one *wink wink.

    84. bobi chung

    90. Zeb Culture

      I like your Funny words magic man. However I do not understand them and am going into existential despair.

    91. Origins .0000

      Who watched this whole video. Not me. Boring.zzzzzzz. that ending was hard to watch friend zone. Lame how about making a robot to be your wing man.

    92. matt10342

      Dude this is incredible. Years of knowledge and weeks of hard work all summed up into 20 minutes of KGup video. You deserve the sub man!
