Never miss another shot with this one-of-a-kind robotic basketball hoop

May 15, 2020

In a recent video, YouTuber Stuff Made Here demonstrates how to construct and program a robotic basketball hoop.

I’ve never really been good at sports. Now that I think about it, that statement is probably too positive. Let’s try that again. I’ve always been really bad at sports. I never played on a sports team as a child, and I was always picked last for any school-sponsored physical event. I’d much rather stay inside and watch Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel than play a real sport with some friends outside. But what if mathematics and technology could be melded together to create a foolproof game to help uncoordinated, unathletic people like me become interested in sports? In a recent video, YouTuber Stuff Made Here demonstrates how to construct and program a robotic basketball hoop.
