How does the bowling alley work? I haven't been able to find much info about it.
Its software comtrolled eg it knows the direction of where the ball is heading when you release it and than it calculates the path and which pins are hit. Than the coils which hold these pins are activated snd the bowlingpin goes up.
So its not your ball which puts the pins down.
