Amazing Marble Machine! [Crazy Project]
posted December 17 2013 15:46.59 by spic0m




This kinetic sculpture is a ball bearing's paradise. Not only do they get a cushy ride around two lift wheels but there's a variety of enjoyable obstacles they can go down. The first is a vortex made from a wooden flower pot which sends the balls randomly down one of two possible exits. From there it's on to enjoy a ride on a flip-flop, a divide-by-three (takes weight of three marbles before it dumps them all), a zig-zag track, or a divide by twelve mechanism.
Ronald Walters shows it in action and takes it apart to illustrate the various features.
