Stuff Made Here is a popular YouTube channel that comes up with amazing contraptions. However, the latest entry has to be the best yet. Have you ever wanted a basketball hoop that never misses a shot? Well, you got it. Recently, the channel debuted one that uses Microsoft Kinect to predict the ball's trajectory and adjust the back panel accordingly. You can watch the amazing video below.

It's always interesting to me to see how Kinect is used outside of the gaming space. I've seen it at airports, clothing stores, museums, and other locations. I can't wait to see what developers do with the peripheral next.

  • Amazing! The Kinect might not have been that well received for gaming, but it has always undeniably a great work of engineering, really advanced stuff. Even today the old versions are used for a lot of things. And the new Azure ones haven't even begun to fulfill their potential.
  • Holy crap that is crazy!! Now, if he could just move the hoop as well so that you could still swish a shot that comes up a bit short. X-D
