No shrooms necessary for this here video kiddies.  This madly expensive billiards projection/tracking system ($200k) is a pretty innovative way to make pool awesome no matter how bad you suck at it.

As you play the game, you can uncover a hidden picture as the balls pass over the felt.  Other fancies include flame trails that follow the balls and rippling water effects.  Apparently new software is being written to make the tracking system more useful as well.

It would be able to teach you trick shots or simply show you the angle lines and options for potential shots.  While the price tag will keep this system away from most consumers, hopefully we’ll soon see this in bars or clubs in high-profile cities such and New York City and Los Angeles.
