Shane Wighton is an American YouTuber best known for his YouTube channel, Stuff Made Here: an engineering-focused channel where Wighton builds various innovative inventions. As of October 2020, Stuff Made Here had over 1.54 million subscribers. As of October 2020, his most viewed video, entitled "Moving hoop won't let you miss", had over 13.6 million views. In the video he creates a basketball hoop that uses various motors to adjust its angle within a 600 millisecond timeframe, in order for the basketball to always go into the basketball net. His first variation of the net was not built using electronics, but had a curved backboard in order to redirect the ball into the net from most angles. During the COVID-19 pandemic, while stuck at home , he built a robot that cuts hair using various sensors and scissors. For Halloween, he converted the hair-cutting machine into a machine that maps images and carves intricate designs onto pumpkins. On June 2, 2020, he posted a video where he created a golf-club that automatically adjusts to achieve certain distances and club types. Wighton has also posted two videos where he created multiple versions of baseball bats that utilize blank bullets and pistons to try to beat the world home-run record.
