Free Billiard Video –

Demonstration of an example student project (in a graduate robotics course) to sort widgets into stacks of “good” widgets (with hole) and “bad” widgets (no hole). An Adept One robot is used, and the solution was inspired by the HAL 9000 computer in the movie: “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

Many more video demonstrations of engineering and physics principles and devices can be found at:

  1. So he transfers the entire “questionable” stack every time it is in the way. I wonder if he remembers how deep that stack is and moves the whole thing at once. If so, it would probably have to make that movement more slowly.

  2. All questionable widgets are placed in the “questionable” stack.

  3. What does he do if you give him two or more questionable widgets?

  4. HAL insists on burdening the silly humans with the CRT/camera sync issue.

    This is actually a good example of sampling and aliasing (per my other recent videos).

  5. ah the black bar of video distortion. curse of the CT monitors. Still really awesome though
