Not my hobby, but I somehow love that it exists.

1. Imagine if he put all that intelligence and effort into something that really benefitted humankind.

I certainly don't know what he does when he isn't filming a video of himself creating the ultimate baseball bat that can never be used in the real world. Perhaps he is actually creating something that will benefit humankind and will earn him a nobel prize.

I don't know. This just seemed like such a waste of a good brain. Granted he's created a learning product to hopefully inspire kids to become mechanical engineers, but still seems like a waste.

6. His day job is with Formlabs, a company that makes high-end 3D printers

They are involved with a lot of areas, including 3D printing medical swabs and devices.

His YouTube channel is a hobby.

Here's some info about the company he works for:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formlabs

I think he has a pretty well-balanced life, and is definitely helping to make several types of contributions to our society, including maybe getting kids excited enough about science and engineering to potentially start looking at that as a career track,

2. The next time I'm approached

by members of meal team 6, Iíll be using this bat to project soup cans back at them. Itís more efficient than the twirling bags.

3. Well I just sent the grandson a couple of Kiwi mechanical Christmas decorations

for him to build.
We sent him some starter crates for his birthday a few months back. So far he is really enjoying them.

4. Thanks for the post. I enjoyed the whole thing including

the plug at the end for what looks like very cool gifts for kids (big and small) at the end.

5. Thanks! Smarter Every Day's Destin (former NASA engineer) did high-speed analysis...

and got some very interesting results. Both of these channels on YouTube are worth subscribing to, if you're interested in seeing the science behind a lot of things.



Looks like the rest of the day is shot for me...if you need me, I'll be somewhere down the rabbit hole of Stuff Made Here's channel...
