World's First Automatic Strike Bowling Ball

You don't need to be good at bowling if you're good at engineering.
Thanks to BOSE for their support and for the coolest pair of sunglasses ever:

Summary: I made a bowling ball with James Bruton where it will steer left and right depending on how you lean. People lean anyways when the bowl to try and influence the direction so we just capitalized on that. It operates on the same principles of a BB8 ball.

Thanks to Carlyle tools for giving my workbench tools a seriously needed upgrade!

      Well I mean you aren't good at engineering you are literally if the engineer from TF2 was real and didn't use guns.

    Mark, I have a good idea about a video you should fill a pool with coke or Pepsi, and then add a ton of mentos.

    How did you retrieve the ball? If you used the alley retriever, did the other balls impact or alter the mechanics within your Jedi ball?

    Unsubscribing because you're more interested in looking like a good ally to autistics than listening to what autistics want.

    Why were the pins placed way in front of the pin setter? They also sounded hollow. Anyway still a super cool invention and the kids were cute! 👍
