YES I know this has been a topic before but i just want to hear some idea's or pics of other peoples tables.

After some basic brainstorming i was thinking i want to do something along the lines of putting multi colored LED's underneath the cups kind of like this picture except i think i could get away with only 1 or 2. Then just put some like 6" tubes underneath for underglow and have everything on one controller so they pattern together...

Any thoughts, improvements?

Might be easier to use photo sensors (light) verses pressure.

I would try to diffuse the light as much as possible. Bright lights while playing and drinking can be really annoying.

Auto ball washer. Putting one on each side of the table my friend and i are in the works on right now. Just get a simple cheap water pump from a fish tank and hook it up to a little dispenser and some pvc pipe. Kind of works like a garden pond.

Million color under all the cups would be cool, would mess with the thrower though.

Is it going to circulate the same dirty water? cause that would defeat the purpose.

The purpose of that is what? Something to break when drunk people fall over it?

Do you not always circulate the same dirty water when you just have a cup of it.

Auto ball washer is a waste of time. But if you are going to do it, do it right.

With a reservoir pumping water, through a filter to trap hair and large dirt pieces, you can create a single pipe across like the setup you showed. Then using a bilge pump or another air pumpe you can float the ball out of the pipe. So on both sides of the table there is a hole the size of the ball. It's amazing.

Glow in the dark lines are great for black light parties.

I have a table besides my cap table in the works right now. I have no idea what I'm doing with it, but it might have a permanent room to stay in so I might get wild with it.

I might be making one after next week when I get paid. I got the 21st birthday coming up, and might just throw something together at my house.
