Obscura Digital’s CueLight Pool Table uses motion tracking software and an overhead projector to layer animation on top of a standard pool table. The animations react to the changing positions of the balls, and add some color and additional action to the game. Future plans for the system include a computer analysis of the balls position and lighted lines to revel the best possible shots.

Watch a video of the CueLight below.
