Introduction: Equipoise: a K'nex Ball Machine

Hello, this is Equipoise, my 13th Ball Machine. It has 5 lifts and 5 paths. There is a lot of Mario Kart track. There is also a "red floor" aka some of the wide mario tracks used like a white floor to collect all of the balls. The video is in with the images, You might have to hunt to find it :)

It is an Entry in the "Automation" contest, so vote, vote, vote!

The music in the video is a trombone quintet my entry in Christopher Bill's YouTube composition competition.

Lift 1: Mario push lift, built by me

Lift 2: Mathsboy314's slider lift

Lift 3: Mathsboy314's multiple arm lift

Lift 4: Sandroknexmaster's Jump lift

Lift 5: Chain lift

---------------------------------------------------------------

Path 1: 3 rail pathing, then some clicky pathing I designed, then multiple arm lift, ther mario track, then drops into a basket, then Sandro's Jump lift.

Path 2: Orange tubing path, then a big ferris wheel by knextus, then mario kart track, then green motorized madness track

Path 3: Motorized madness spiral, then a flapper element I made, then www139's zigzag panel drop from Impossible.

Paths 4 & 5: www139's Separation and connection from Impossible.

Awesome ball machine! Wow, thirteenth ball machine! Most everybody would never even think of being able to build that many ball machines! I like your building style. Keep it up! :D

Thanks! Many of the 13 were much smaller than the machines most people build though.

True, but it's still remarkable.

Nice ball machine! Glad to see some people posting these. Nice name!
