Bitcoin-Operated Pool Table

Stuart Kerr sent in some details about their Bitcoin-Operated Pool Table. With Bitcoin getting more traction as time goes on I think we will start to see more systems like this game that will accept bitcoin as an option.

“Basically we’ve made a pool table where payment can be made by Bitcoin instead of (well actually as well as) cash! It works pretty well, with a Raspberry Pi controlling the whole thing, and a Bitcoin QR code + LCD screen on the side for payments to be made. We’ve got a video showing it in action, with the pool balls being released just moments after the payment is sent from a mobile phone.”
