I wanted to see if I could make myself a better golfer by combining robotic engineering and golf. The result is a robotic club that senses your swing and corrects your shot for distance. It should be possible to correct for slice and hook with some hardware and software upgrades. It also has a cool mode where it can be any iron so no need to carry eleven clubs.
All hail our our robot overlords. I'm looking forward to gen 2 and doing more science on how good a robot really can make you.

    wow, the amount of work that went into this! The failed attempt is really interesting too. I would also need to correct for club length and missing the ball entirely!

      @Stuff Made Here would also be easier to predict where will it hit the ball if you have a special ball which tells the club where it is at, or a camera at the club that can see the ball.

      @Stuff Made Here Keeping the club long during the swing and shortening it just before hitting the ground should also increase the hit force quite a lot.

    I think it would be cool to see a trombone that always plays precisely in tune. There are lots of slides to play around with. Maybe it could also detect the chord to play in tune there. The main difficulty would be making sure all the engineering itself doesn’t change the tonal quality.

    Thank you so much again for this great video (ok I know its over one year old) ;) I think it is so important that you explain everything you do so easily, so young people can see that a lot of basic physics knowledge lies in such a project! And also thank you for that part with the USB driver, because this is exactly what every maker faces on his Project!!!! One simple thing that yould work takes you a real big bunch of time to fix - and at the end its one worng hex-Number, I dont know how often I had such issues that frustrated me so badly. I think its very important for people to see, that theses issues belong to the process and must be showed by experts like you! So THANKT YOU!!!! btw I cant find your announced music Project :(

    Recommend using rigid tubing with an accumulator for hydraulic models. Rigid tubing can also be used as the club shaft. Double walled tubing could be used to minimize the shaft profile.

    Just a quick tip, when doing your back swing, try not to bend your left arm as much as that will help you hit the ball more consistently.

      One club that can be every iron in your bag at once is great. A bag full of golf clubs is heavy, and even if you have a golf cart you still have to load and unload it from the car into the golf cart. Even without the computerized stuff that could be considered cheating, being able to carry 3-4 clubs instead of more than a dozen clubs is something golfers would definitely want.

  • James Schenken

    I like your approach and design. The earliest such club (without automation ) was made in the 1930's with later ones made by "super Stick in the 1950's, Walking Sticks, and Divnick ( who currently sells them. Great work to get the ability to adjust mid-swing.

    For version 3.... consider shaft flex as it flexes during different velocities... or just go stiff shaft to reduce that as much as you can. ... would be interesting to have a putting version that read the topography and in your smart glasses, gave you the right path & speed to putt. (Like your pool table project) awesome stuff!!!!!

      Alright everybody, big story coming up, so grab yourself some popcorn! I once wrote a python program to analyze an excel sheet containing thousands of rows data, send that to an external API, get the response back, do some processing and update the excel sheet. Relatively easy work, one might say. At the end I was supposed to write all the info like number of rows, how many were successfully processed, how many errors encountered such things blah blah to a log.txt file. The interesting part is, if lets say a 1000 records were error-ed out, I had to write those row numbers into the log with a comma separator. But the catch is, it has to be split into multiple lines with a maximum of 100 values per line. So I implemented some kind of loop to make that work. Everything's done. It's showtime. I know that one record takes around 3 seconds to process and I have nearly 8000 records. I estimated about 6.5 to 7 hours for the entire thing to complete, give or take. So I kept it running overnight and slept. The next morning I woke up and saw it's still not done yet. First thought, maybe the API has been slowed down due to some kind of bottleneck. So I waited longer. It's been 12 hours and still not done. When I went and checked the log file I saw that it was more than 500 MB in size. I instantly sensed something wrong (obviously), stopped the program and started debugging. After 6 hours of debugging I found out the culprit. Remember that loop I implemented for the log? Well I incremented the control variable outside the loop (python and it's indentations, argh!) I learned a major lesson that day, and I can't stress this enough. **ALWAYS TEST YOUR PROGRAM WITH SMALLER DATASETS**

    Great effort! One of my ideas that I believe you can accomplish is what I like to call the "treadmill shoes" From the name it is clear that the shoes are supposed to replace a treadmill by allowing the person who's wearing them to run/ walk/ jog on the spot. No motors are involved just bearings, sensors, a control board and brakes the limit the motion of the bearings according to an algorithm you're supposed to derive. Have fun!

    Hitting 500 balls with one club and then the other would skew your data as well, as you gain 500 hits worth of experience hitting the ball. So you have to continuously switch between each shot to keep all the variable deviation to a minimum, I think.

    Regarding the angle the club is at when it hits the ball, could you assume that once you get to a certain part of the swing you're always just about to hit the ball and adjust accordingly? Would the system be fast enough to do that, or does it really need to have a margin of time to adjust?

Something similar to how occulus rift software uses timewarp to adjust frames ahead of time but instead adjusting stick angle. Would potentially allow for a lot more accuracy.

    Cool idea. Even if it was legal I wouldn’t see it being viable, in this version anyway. The swing weight of this club would be absurd. Fun tho! Good stuff.

    Would love to see a pitching apparatus that could emulate any pitchers velo & spin rate, & maybe even throw nastier pitches.. Baltimore would be happy to have the first robotic pitcher right now.

    You could define the impact angle by addressing the ball and “setting” the position of the club along with the intended trajectory. This would help to define the hook/slice calibration as well. Then maybe do some testing with a vibration sensor to determine the relative angle at the point of impact to fine tune the data. This would help to teach the club the angle at impact vs the angle at the address point and could be used with some AI to be made for any user and it would improve with more data points over time

    15:00 I would try 1 game with distance mode and 1 game with emulator mode, then its the same club but you can compare your performance with a "regular" club vs a magic club

    Wow....just wow. Mind blown at the ingenuity here. I would be interested in a pro-golfer's opinion after playing 18 holes though.

    It would be neat to have the head weight change based on the selected club. Maybe weights in the shaft. Move them closer to the head for a heavier club and up to the pivot point for a lighter club. Liquid in the shaft with an inflatable bladder in the center. A vent tube connecting the top and bottom around the bladder and the liquid near the head could be pumped and held in place.

      @Allison And your comment will be a perfect example for Sam to show kindness trumps hatred. You showed me respect even though you disagreed with something I said, and you respectfully stated your concern to Sam in regards to his negatively put opinion. Calling it out exactly for what it was, maybe he will read that and understand what he did and learn from it. I just tend to be too sarcastic and I can see how my comment was misleading

      @Ty Whatley Good viewpoint to have on this stuff and knowledge in general. Also made me remember what Dunning Kruger theory was. Though, I do feel it apt to mention that the quality of the kindness in Sam's reply was... very questionable. Given he pretty much said 'all these people are just a bunch of clout chasing 14 year olds who don't know shit'. Which is a really shitty way to try to compliment someone and it also tears everyone else down at the same time. Even if the intent was supposed to be kind, it's still really rude.

      @Sam Hewitt royce da 5'9 - "A wise man knows a wise man knows nothing" Honestly it doesn't bother me to know there are people smarter than me, for humanity's sake I would certainly hope there are plenty of people way smarter than me lol. At the same time I feel very confident about where my place lies in the Dunning Kruger theory. I also have a great relationship with God and that's all that matters to me. Thank you though Sam for being a kind person👍

    You strike me as the kind of person who could reignite the passion in a long-time engineering professor. I could easily imagine the job of teaching engineering to people could dull the joy of engineering quite heavily. I can just picture you as a college student asking your professor for advice for some batshit insane problem that you've created for yourself, such as "hey prof, I'm trying to make a self-correcting golf club but my hydraulics aren't working out for me," and having them immediately get invested in it.

    I am VERY late the party since i just found this video but i´d be super interested in what you can achieve with this project/club if you would do data collecting, integrate a slice and hook correction and maybe even do a variation in the club length as suggested in other comments! :)

    But, can you make the club actually hit the ball everytime? Like one that judges where the head of the club is going to be based off of how you're swinging it and then adjust so it actually hits the ball, makes the ball go the selected distance, and without slicing it, as opposed to just missing it every time I try to play golf?

    Nice video. But what I instantly recognized was the fact that he wears the glove on the wrong hand. Since he builds a club for right-handed people he should have been wearing the glove on the left hand. But overall a nice idea and very well executed.
