Computerised Pool Trainer

I was talking to someone on the weekend about how he had come up with an idea for a computerised pool trainer which would use a laser to project the pool balls' path on the pool table. This sounds like a great idea but has it been done before?

Unfortunately for him it already exists and there's even video of the "Automatic Pool Trainer" in action at a demonstration in Denmark:

As you can see from the video; the trainer uses standard pool equipment including the table, the cue, and the balls. The trainer simply projects data onto the felt of the pool table from a video projector above the table.

Please leave a comment if you know of any other pool trainers and if you have any other questions which you'd like me to answer please send an email to Ben Dash at
