Posted on 11/06/2009 8:18:53 AM PST by Reaganesque
What do you get the sports fan who wants to bowl 300 without practicing? Try the RC900, a remote-control bowling ball invented by San Antonio, Texas-based 900 Global. The bowler steers the ball by adjusting the position of a weight screwed onto a threaded shaft inside the ball.
The product is being marketed to young children and those unable to bowl because of physical limitations. The ball itself is surprisingly nimble, as evidenced by a user-submitted video (see below) in which one of them slaloms smoothly around four chairs set up along the lane before striking the headpin. Of course, no one ever said a perfect game was cheap; 900 Globals ball retails for $1500.
Ha! That’s pretty cool.
Check out the image on the left: is that a “Made in U.S.A.” I see? Impossible.
POtuS will probably get one to improve his scores in the WH bowling alley.
Don’t tell Willie or Dennis.
It’s not “real” manufacturing, anyway.
I wonder how long it’ll be ‘til this is weaponized?
My bet’s he’s sold the patents to the chicoms already...
