Filmmaker Devin Graham and Cinechopper got together to perform some cool trick shots using drones. Cinechopper customized the drones to carry and drop bowling balls, which allowed them to do some stuff in a bowling alley and much more.
We can always rely on the guys at CTA Digital to show up at CES with some goofy add-on for gaming consoles. This year is no different, and they’re showing a variety of silly business. My personal favorite (next to these inflatable karts for Mario Kart) is their bowling ball add-on for the various motion-controlled games out there.
I actually was pretty decent bowler when I was a kid, but on the rare occasion that I go bowling these days, I usually get a score that I’d rather have for my golf game. It would be cool to have have one of these robotic bowling machines to bring to the alley, so I could still beat my friends on a consistent basis.
While this doesn’t really qualify as a techie gadget or a video game, I came across this quirky game and thought it was just too good to pass up.
Instead of knocking over some ordinary pins with this bowling game, you knock over a bunch of little plastic lawn gnomes.
Industrial designer Josh Owen has created this simple lighting fixture that’s cast in the shape of a bowling pin. The cool part is that it’s got a tilt sensor inside of it that turns off when the lamp is knocked over, and turns back on when stood upright.
