Robotic Basketball Hoop Can't Miss
Let’s face it, even professional basketball players miss shots, even in the most crucial of times, but what if there was a way for common folk to avoid this issue? Inventor Shane Wighton has just the creation. He came up with a robotic basketball hoop that makes use of complex mathematical algorithms to determine the perfect elliptic parabola shape for the backboard. Read more for a video and additional information.

There’s just one problem, this robotic hoop requires one to stand and shoot from a certain spot and exact distance from the backboard. This is mainly due to the depth-sensing Microsoft Kinect mounted above the backboard and hoop. It’s used to recognize and track the trajectory of the ball, as well as identifying multiple shooters. The impressive thing is that it takes just 600 milliseconds for the entire system to analyze all of the data and make adjustments in real-time.
