Thousands have told me that anyone can easily miss my first automatic basketball hoop by missing the hoop entirely. That is a really good point and something that I can’t let stand. In this video I show you how I devoted several weeks of my life to realizing a basketball hoop that makes your shot go in even if you totally miss the hoop…. it was a lot of fun, and quite a bit more challenging than I was anticipating. Hopefully you enjoy it 🙂

Although very fun, these videos are very time consuming and expensive. Please consider helping to support the development of these projects through my patreon at

This project was really hard. It was a huge challenge to whittle the 450gigs of footage down into a video that shared my journey of designing and getting this machine working. I hope you enjoyed it 🙂 If you are interested in helping to support me making more of these videos you can check out my Patreon at One question – would a podcast be interesting yes / no? I’ve been considering that as an opportunity to share more details and whatnot that can’t make it into my videos.
