Marble Machines

One of the amateur projects highlighted at the end of the mook for Gakken kit #28 was a very sophisticated marble machine by a Japanese guy who goes by the name Denha. One of the interesting features of this machine is that it's modular and different sections can be mounted in place to change its behavior. While surfing Denha's channel on Youtube, I found a couple of other machines that I also liked. You can follow the links from here.

Yes! I suggested he use a geared motor or something slower and it looks like he did =^x^=!
