Cataclysm Knex Ball Machine-Update

I finally finished the new lift system for Cataclysm! It uses two CyberKnex motors for the are to go up and back down. When the ball exits the arm, it pushes switches to push the arm back down and reset the mechanism.

Here's a video

Here's a challenge for you. Try making a motorized tilted maze.

I have lots of maze elements planned for this ball machine, and even a new kind of path separator.
But I don't want to give any of my ideas away (it'll be a surprise).
FRANKLY, IT'S 2011 WHEN I POSTED THIS COMMENT, AND I SAW YOUR YOUTUBE VIDEO, AND I DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING.
What kindof knew path seperator do you want to do?
Can you make an instructable for the various switches and automatics used in this ball machine lift? I would like to apply your knowlege into my ball machines plus I like fidgety stuff like that.

I was thinking of making a mini version of it that had a similar mechanism.

Genius (tell me if I spelled that right, I'm dutch)

Thanks, and you spelled it right. :)
OK (-:
The smily is the wrong way around. You have to make it like this :-)
