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:

My buddy Mark's machine shop. He is really great to work with and they can do really out of the box projects like this- www.BaumanMachine.Com

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!

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:


  • You don't need to be good at bowling if you're good at engineering. Please consider subscribing.

    • What if you just lose your ball?

    • 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 😉

    • Mark Rober u don’t have to be good at anything if ur gud at engineering

    • Increase science talks . My personal aim in life is AI research

  • Whys your pins set up in front of the rack?? Couldn't your ball go threw the ball return??

  • Ever try that same technology to make a dart & dart board

  • time to use those glasses to listen to my beautiful russian hardbass in the streets

  • Is the code available?

  • Board (for pepole are not playing ) : - NRF24L01 -arduino nano - MPU-9250 6 axis gyro

  • i love his open dog projekt

  • 1:33 like if you seen the dalek

  • Just 2 million more trees... thats actualy a lot

  • im the only person my dad who has seen who got a ball in the gutter..... with rails

  • Fundraising for trees! Awesome! Now how about next you start listening to actually autistic adults about your actions and not blocking them? 😊

  • Hope you get 10M fast do I

  • I need this because im gonna go bowling soon

  • Sorry i cant donate . 😢 i wish i could .if you can , pls do donate

  • i love tenpin

  • 한국인 >

  • This channel inspired me to pursue a degree in mech. engineering!!! Thx Mark!

  • I want him to collab with Micheal reeves


  • The sunglasses are also perfect for falling asleep during class while listening to dope music.

  • How did you retrieve the ball? If you used the alley retriever, did the other balls impact or alter the mechanics within your Jedi ball?

  • @Mark Rober, anyone tell you you look like Popping john the breakdancer with your hat on backwards and even more so with those glasses..😂

  • Unsubscribing because you're more interested in looking like a good ally to autistics than listening to what autistics want.

  • Why were the pins placed way in front of the pin setter? They also sounded hollow. Anyway still a super cool invention and the kids were cute! 👍

  • I’m using your channel for a idea for a science fair project for school

  • How to cheat level 999

  • My son has been watching this for 2 hours straight and now he thinks he's a rocket scientist he thinks he can do anything that you can do

  • He should make it so jimmy falon can never knock down a pin lol

  • Instead of sending Christmas cards, this year, I'm sending Christmas trees. Just got one for you my dear Mark Roper. #TeamTrees

  • This is how the casino wins at roulette...

  • I still get confused how this guy gets even 1 dislike

    • Probably flat earthers that don't like him because he worked at NASA

  • Great stuff

  • Wow I could have used this in 2006 for Wii sports!

  • Does he use an accelerometer? I was thinking about making a gimbal on a drone rotate based on the movement of my head. That way I would not have to switch channels on my controller.

  • Sometimes i wish you would be my physics teacher

  • The first time I watch your vid I just think about subscribing 😅

  • This reminds me of that one scene in Tom and Jerry where Jerry does this. Who remembers this.? 😂

  • Will you please try to make and test Da Vinci’s diving suit?

  • You cheated again Mawk Rova >:(

  • This guy is Gorgeous!
