German pool playing robot

From IEEE Automation:

Nothing too special, but interesting how it uses a camera and an algorithm software to plan its shots. I really like the navigation around the table; it's just a simple process based on saved waypoints, probably the corners of the table and a couple of points on the edges where the robot could stop. It's also cool that humans can use the algorithm software too.

IEEE Automation says that a PR2 robot did this earlier.
