Our project is about a beneficial machine that rebounds and propels basketballs back to the shooters. The project was chosen to solve the problem of having to retrieve long rebounds. The result of this project is having the convenience of the ball returning to the shooter every time. The project is important because it helps basketball players of any age practice more efficiently.

  2. Nice work demonstrating the setup and showing how you constructed the Automatic Basketball Rebounder 2.0 product.

    I like that it just cost less than $150 to build with the smart use of material from local hardware stores. I think the two motors might cost you a bit more. As you continue to develop this idea, I’d recommend figuring out how you will power the motors. Will the device need to be plugged into the wall? Does that mean you need perhaps a 20-60 foot long wire to connect to the nearest plug point in a Gym? To reduce costs could you use one motor and perhaps gears to distribute the force equally? Could there be a wireless version (perhaps with a car battery or something else?)
