This video shows simulated physics-based motion planning examples in several challenging domains, including robot minigolf, robot soccer, and pool.
The underlying planning algorithms are described in my PhD Thesis "Physics-Based Robot Motion Planning in Dynamic Multi-Body Environments" (CMU-CS-10-115), Stefan Zickler, 2010.

The Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour stop at Kamp Grizzly was epic. Johnny brought a great crowd, his limited edition tour gear and the inspiration for Kamp's Cupcake Cannon. Portland's Kamp Grizzly developed a steam-punk style pneumatic cupcake cannon and set the stage for eating frosty delights at 120psi. The blasting buffet was documented in at 700fps coming off the Phantom HD Gold. As the evening shook down, cupcake enthusiasts continued to step in front of the cannon and camera. Some shaking in their boots, others perched in zen-like states, ALL were covered in delicious frosting, spongy cake, and showered in a mist of sprinkles.

I gaffed my little Canon http://amzn.to/SD1000 to the trophy table on stage for this unique and dangerous view of the performance.
