Clockwork – K’nex Ball Machine

When I first began watching this video, I thought to myself: Ok – how could this possibly be interesting for a full 5 minutes? Then, I saw something pretty cool – and then something else, and then something else.

I could tell this was a jaw-dropping project from the get-go, but seeing some of the details up close (the loops, the ramps) I found pretty mesmerizing.

Kudos to to YouTube user astron for building this thing. Check out the YT channel for more videos, or this blog for more details.

I truly hope this person is able to parlay these videos into building this stuff, full-time. I bet there would be plenty of musueums out there, interested in having a custom installation.
