STRIKE! Introducing the BowlBot 5000
In pin bowling, the goal is to knock over pins at the end of a lane, with either two or three balls per frame allowed to knock down all pins. A strike is achieved when all the pins are knocked down on the first roll, and a spare is achieved if all the pins are knocked over on a second roll.
But in this video , this machine shows an incredible way to knock the destination. I imagine they had it set to "plaid speed" to ensure nobody thinks its real. Not gonna lie if they kept it as a reasonable speed it could of fooled me they did an amazing job on the lighting to make it blend in even more.not gonna lie if they kept it as a reasonable speed it could of fooled me they did an amazing job on the lighting to make it blend in even more.
robotic bowlers do exist. The Equipment Specifications and Certifications team at the United States Bowling Congress uses a bowling robot name EARL (Enhanced Automated Robotic Launcher) to study the motion of bowling balls. E.A.R.L. (Enhanced Automated Robotic Launcher) is designed to be able to consistently simulate any type of bowling style with an accuracy and consistency on the lanes that no human bowler can achieve. Those qualities make E.A.R.L. invaluable in the many studies necessary to keep up with the ever-changing bowling ball industry…
The main goal of the ball motion studies, started in 2005, is to gather data about the complex dynamics and inner motion characteristics of today’s high-tech bowling balls. USBC is testing to determine how balls with different properties and characteristics act together, then use this and other information obtained in working with bowling ball manufacturers and other industry leaders to set performance-based specifications for bowling balls used in USBC-certified competition.
