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!

    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 😉

    I just wanna day thank you. In my highs cool we spend half the year in academics like match English and blah blah and the other half we have a career path with professionals. At first I thought mechanical engineering was boring but after watching ur videos I learned how cool it was I’m praying I get accepted into the mechanicl engineering

    If I were to find myself 300 years in the past, what are 3 vital pieces of information I should know? Similarly, 300 years into the future, what are 3 questions I should ask?

    LMAOOO @ "Bad CGI" comment Bone conduction headphones are awesome. I have a pair of Aeropex and they're fantastic. Ear buds kill my ears and give me headaches.
