    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!

    Mark I came across this video of a Tesla valve. I would love to see this extended and see if it's possible to break the speed of sound as well as see what happens when you make the whole thing bigger.

    Love this! Just found your channel - excellent. Did you have to shut off the switch for the return trip of the ball? I am thinking it could easily jumped a rail or something when returning.
