OpenPool allows you to play billiard with beautiful interactive visual effects. By adding a few pieces of devices, your existing billiard table turns into a futuristic gaming machine. OpenPool uses Kinect2 to watch the locations of the balls, and a projector shows cool effects around the moving balls.

OpenPool exhibited their first prototype in SXSW 2013. Since then, we have been working on developing the product for over a year, and completed a fully working prototype.

Today, we start to exhibit SXSW 2014 Trade Show. As we already started our Kickstarter campaign on March 7, we run the campaign seeking for getting funded in the world's biggest festival and distributing the product to all over the world.
