Gyroscopic Billiards

I saw this video the other day of a self-leveling pool table on the cruise ship Radiance of the Seas. Products like this or the Segway are great examples of how powerful inertial sensors such as gyroscopes and accelerometers can be, and as their capabilities and price continue to improve I think we will be seeing many more cool applications using them. I wonder if this pool table was just a proof-of-concept for applying the technology to beds – maybe we’ll be saying goodbye to seasickness soon (at least in first class).
