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!

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

That is so cool....... ......... ....for like a day...... Probably what? Atleast a weeks time to plan it, test it, and build it. Now toss it into the nearest river 😉

Thank you so much mark you are the one who inspired me to love science. And fix my future on becoming a mechanical engineer at nasa.
I love your videos so much and you inspired me to be smart. And now I’m being tested for a gifted class at my school and I will never stop loving science even though I get made fun of. I will never stop.
Thank you- Quinn

It is very possible to strike throwing straight. You just have to make sure you throw it about 22 mph to get pins to scatter and bounce of thei other pins. I know straight bowlers that avg in the 200's

I'd love to see a video of Mark detailing the processes and mechanics of any of the pinsetters, such as the Brunswick A/A-2/Jetback, GS series, or AMF 82-30, 82-70, or 82-90/XL. 👍 If you agree!
