Variable-terrain putting green



Phil first blogged this school project by Mark Giannasi, Aaron Gaylord, Brody Collins, Thomas Boileau and Maiki Vlahinos of Colorado State University’s Mechanical Engineering Department back in March. Now, Giannasi, et. al., have raised the bar by entering the project in our ongoing Gadget Freak Design Contest:

Why putt golf balls into a paper cup when you can have your own variable-terrain putting green? This course…offers players three cups and three skill levels. The most advanced level raises two platforms that change the terrain of the course – and the challenge that golfers face.

Complete build details are available at our partner blog Design News.
