Favorite Youtube Design Video 2020: The Robot That Shines a Laser in Your Eye

Michael Reeves’ youtube channel consists of him building silly and counter-productive DIY robots – this one in particular is one of his funnier builds, where a robot tracks your face and shines a laser in your eye. I find this one particularly funny since for my final project, I had wanted to incorporate some facial tracking for movement of my sculpture, which would be a similar effect to that of this build video, but definitely not as harmful! As funny as the build and video is, the technology involved is pretty impressive for actually building a capable robot.

    Love Michael reeves hes a wonderful combination of memes, self loathing, and tech. I wish he went into more depth about what he was doing, but clearly based on the evolution of his videos his fan base did not and thus he includes it less and less. Still follow his videos whenever they come out, think trigger me elmo is great would buy 10/10

    Hello Kevin! I like a lot of Michael Reeves’ videos and I definitely get mad scientist vibes from him. I think he does a great job of showing impressive technology in a timely manner, and showing how accessible coding and the design process for a desired gadet is.
