HOW DOES IT WORK?!?!?


THE PLATFORM
THE Pool Stick is mounted on a Moveable Platform. The Platform is fully rotateable so that the User is allowed to hit the ball with a wide range that varies from one edge to another to dead center. This allows the User to cause unique spins and perform tricks with the ball.


THE POOL STICK
The Pool Stick is attached to rotating joints which move to allow the cue stick to position itself pointed anywhere on the cue ball. It may even be pointed so that it completely misses the ball. The Pool Stick can be shifted forward also by varying speeds allowing the toy to calculate the force of the impact.


THE SPEAKER
The Speakers allow for the sound that the toy makes to be heard. The toy will give tips, taunts, and make random sounds while the person plays with the game.


THE CUE BALL AND CONTROL PAD
The Cueball allows full movement in the environment of the toy. Rotate the ball toward the screen and you zoom in. Rotate the ball the other ways and you rotate around the center of the Cueball allowing you to look around. Use the Cueball for menu selection. The Control pad allows for zoom-in and zoom-out movement. It also allows for Menu selection as the middle button turns on/off the toy and pops the menu up!


THE LINK
The link on the side allows one to connect to another person who also owns one of these toys allowing them to interact. This allows for two player head to head versus games or a team game against a team of computer opponents.


THE LCD
The LCD is the display. It displays the environment, the various elements of the game. It will display close captioning when the toy makes a taunt or gives a tip. It also displays the menu when it is accessed.
