Have you play snooker games on watery pool table? Perhaps the water and flame animations would be something cool for rich and the richest society. The Obscura CueLight Pool Table will bring you the water waving animation as it uses sensors and an overhead projector to create images that follow the balls as they bang around the table.


According to news from Gizmodo Australia, the system itself will cost around USD80,000 with no pool table included. It’s estimated that around USD125,000 is more likely a logical pricing for the complete system plus the pool table.

In addition to this setup, where the balls reveal an image hidden underneath, you can also set it up to have flames track behind the balls, or water that ripples as the balls pass over it. It’s a pretty awesome trick, one that works surprisingly smoothly.

They’re working on new software that will make it more useful than flashy, too. Imagine playing pool and having the lines where you should shoot projected down on the table, with a computer doing all the math necessary to show you just where to aim and how hard to hit. Pretty sweet.
