Billiards, a game that has probably been around since the late 1500’s. Originally thought to have been brought to the U.S. by way of the Spaniards, it now appears more likely that its beginnings were of Dutch and English settlers bringing it over. The game is played on a table with a cue… and it has been, for a really long time.
Usually bringing to mind cherry paneled walls and brass bar rails, forget everything you used to know about your low tech billiards tables because the CueLight Interactive Pool Table System lets you transform any pool table into an interactive, multi-touch video experience. HD imagery actually responds to a players every shot, providing an immersive, almost surreal pool playing experience.
CueLight lets you add flames or rippling effects to your felt, even allowing hidden images to be revealed as your ball glides across the surface. The system uses high brightness overhead projectors and a simple handheld device that lets users control all of the tables special effects. So if your ordinary game of pool has gotten a little boring, this may be an option for you. You can get a CueLight system with or without a pool table.
