Obscura Cuelight

This unbelievable piece of technology is found at Esquire's Ultimate bachelor pad in New York, I stumbled across it whilst looking for projection animation. The table works by sensing where the balls are located and move and project the 'design' programmed around them.

All in all this technology is just amazing, I've seen this been used practically on channel FIVE's 'The Gadget Show', where using an Infa-Red powered snooker cue accompanied with programing some clever boffin created; the 'player' was able to precisely know where to hit the desired ball and which direction on the table it would travel.

Things like this just amaze me, the technological advancements that are being created are ridiculous; i never thought that something like this would be around today especially to buy! Stuff like this just makes you think if consumers can purchase things like this then what kind of technology can military etc develop??
