A game of pool is all about geometry and physics. With some good hand eye coordination, and a little help from tech, it will come as easy as just picking the cue up and shooting the ball.

PoolLiveAid is a project by Luis Sousa, Ricardo Alves, and J.M.F Rodrigues of University of the Algarve, Portugal and it aims to make playing the game extremely easy for the most unskilled players. The system uses a mounted camera that read the borders of the table, location of the cue ball, and angle of the pool cue to make the calculations required.
