Dual-Armed Robot Plays Pool
Thomas Nierhoff a student at Technische Universität München developed this robotic pool player for his Masters thesis.

This two armed robot uses a combination of hardware and software techniques to give it the ability to predict the trajectory and course of the balls. This simulation technology can also be used by humans, who can also play a computer-assisted game of pool.
