You don't need to be good at bowling if you're good at engineering.

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!

A basketball rim that moves enough increase to the chances of a ball going in the rim but not enough to be obvious. That begs the question: is the nba rigged where they can make any a star?

    • I doubt he does these things to make them happy. Doing things to make other people happy is not sustainable. He likely loves himself and his work first and that love and excitement extends and branches to people around him. Speaking from experience here, it's hard to consistently make loved ones happy when depressed or have a lack of enjoyment.
