An open source, augmented billiard system
using projection mapping technology.
OpenPool is an open source project that gives you a totally 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.
The OpenPool Core:attached on the ceiling watch the locations of balls and shows cool visual effects around the moving balls.
: An original sensor device put on each pocket, made of mbed, LEDs, IR sensors and a 3D-printed case, sends signals when a ball falls into a pocket.
: A microphone detects bumps of balls.
A lot more coming! Or it is you that will make new features in the future: because it’s open source.
