Auto-Aiming Archery Bow

Shane from Stuff Made Here has built himself machines to help cheat at baseball, basketball, golf, and pool. His latest engineering feat? A wearable archery-bot which automatically aims and shoots at targets. It even can hit a moving target by predicting where it will be by the time the arrow gets to it.

Shane at Stuff Made Here is the engineer behind creations like the haircutting robot and the unmissable basketball hoop. In his past videos, you may have noticed that he has quite the assortment of tools in his shop. To show off his collection, he used each of his machines to make a different kind of ball bearing catapult.

After creating a robot that gives haircuts to humans, Shane from Stuff Made Here has bestowed one of his robots with a far more dangerous tool than a set of clippers. While his chainsaw-wielding robot arm is designed for carving shapes from foam blocks, we could see it taking off an arm if there’s any bug in his programming.

“I don’t have skill, but I do have technology!” Shane of Stuff Made Here adds to his collection of robotic sporting goods by engineering a pool cue that automatically lines up the best shot.

“It’s going to take a bit of work for you to truly understand the depths of the stupidity…” Shane from Stuff Made Here decided his first attempt at a robot that gave haircuts wasn’t good enough, so he went back to the drawing board. The new version is a bit more versatile, accurate, and can carve patterns, sorta.

Until LockPickingLawyer gets his hands on this lock, we’re not going to call it infallible, but Shane from Stuff Made Here put an impressive amount engineering effort into this deadbolt that managed to stump a professional locksmith. Along the way, he offers a great explanation of how lock pins and cylinders work.
