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.

$$$ MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR IDEA $$$ (disclaimer: potentially)..Could you make a desktop injection molding machine? Tooling is crazy expensive for small run injection molding...so if you could use that "durable" 3d printing material to make tools, you'd be laughing.

Can it correct for "about to hit the ground behind the ball" or "going to top it"? I guess you would need a telescoping shaft. No idea how you would sense that...

Hey! This is my first time watching one of your video, very cool. There's a material in there that interested me, but i'm unable to find more about it on the internet. It is the 3D printed material you said called "durable"? if you wouldn't mind directing me to more information on it, that would be amazing! Thanks

12:41 you need 2 adjust the servo so that it moves to where the club would be if the golf ball was there. Then it would be more accurate

I am a golfer and screw machinist for 50 years. The club was great BUT you didn't think about pairing mechanical impact with supination of your left wrist. At impact the ball crawls up the face. This is what gives it height and spin. Your left wrist was constantly pronated, alas scooping. It must be supinated, always. Great channel!🐈

Obviously easier said than done, but just a possible recommendation on the slice and hook adjustment. You could set the Xo of the angle where you start the club, so the servo would adjust for the delta of that angle. In my mind, using the same mechanism for the club head angle should also work for the shaft, just rotated vertically. Again, way easier said than done but just a thought in case you were stuck

Hey man, would u be interested in having some sort of intern for your channel? Im an engineering student at the university of denver and I think I could learn a lot more of hands-on engineering skills from you.

Thanks for sharing. I like the design concept. Perhaps the design would be improved by coupling the club with an intelligent tee. The tee would communicate the x,y,z of the ball in order for the club to make last-second adjustments. (With a fixed reference, the error is grossly reduced.) Moreover, the tee could also be equipped with a line of sight between the ball and the hole, so the the ball's direction could also be more accurately calculated. Your design approach is intelligent using an iterative approach to determine the club's head angle. Instead adjust the error off of the theoretical flight rather than empirical method you now use. This approach would also reduce the error to result in a better flight trajectory. Great job in any case! Real engineering my friend. :)

You probably can't swing the club consistently because your form is really bad. When you swing a golf club your left arm is supposed to be straight and your right elbow tucked to your side. You bend both arms which is a no no

You could release a spring-loaded face mechanism a moment before impact, therefore increasing your club-head speed astronomically

Trying to figure your way around commodity electronics is almost always a waste of time. $350 isn’t worth 10 hours of time for a skilled engineer.
