The Basketball Hoop That Doesn't Let You Miss

This Basketball hoop designed and created by YouTuber Stuff Made Here is designed to help you score as much as possible. Using a microcontroller, some stepper motors, and a vision system they've created a system that calculates the trajectory of your throw using some complex math and moves the backboard to ensure that the ball bounces off at the correct angle to pass through the net. The system does all of this in ~0.6 seconds. He's even built-in his own cheats to ensure that it makes his partner miss with every throw and taunts them when they do. It's a great upgrade on the V1 model he made a few months ago and we can't wait to see what the next version will look like!
