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!

  • Mark! Helium airship designs incorporated into modern drone tech. (Or vis versa) You have to admit, you’re already wondering why nobody’s tried it yet. I think it could make drones more stable and less...well...plummety when something goes wrong. Just an idea. I don’t know how to reach you but I have hundreds of weird concepts without the technical savvy to attempt any of them.

  • Probably a bit late, but i had a question if anyone can answer. Does the ball only rotate due to the singular servo motor, so only on 1 axis, because i would think you would need at least 2 if the ball is not in the correct orientation. Thanks to anyone who can answer

  • Cool video and all Mark, but people who aren’t experienced bowlers probably don’t realize that the pins are not standard and they are a set up manually about 10 feet shorter. With that slow of speed and taking out all of the balls core and which is practically all the balls weight THIS WILL NOT GET YOU A REAL STRIKE. Very cool engineering Mike but a little Disingenuous to the viewers.
