1. The NEW OpenPool has come! (10/2/2014) - Finally, the new OpenPool has been released! It works with one Kinect2 on Unity platform. That means you will be able to enjoy increased stability, speed, and beauty. For geeks, please visit the Github repo. https://github.com/openpool/openpool-core-unity To set it up, we documented a new Setup page. http://www.openpool.cc/setup-openpool/ Also, apologies for the delay. Although the funding campaign failed, we continued to work on a voluntary basis, so that we can publish the new version. We hope you could help one another. Anyway, it’s published. We hope you like it.

The new age of billiards

OpenPool is an open source project that gives you a completely new billiards experience.
You’d be fascinated by the interactive visual effects projected onto the table.

If you have a standard pool table, balls and cues, just set up some devices and it’ll turn into an OpenPool.

Most importantly, you can create your own effects because it’s open source.
Now, write some code, invite your friends, and play OpenPool with your coolest self-made effects.


How it works

The Kinect 2 attached on the ceiling watch the locations of balls and a projector shows cool visual effects around the moving balls. For more technical details, please visit our repository!
