Project A (K'nex Ball Machine) Answered

Here is a video of my latest ball machine, Project A. It is about 170 cm. tall. It has 4 different paths and it features my own original element, fireworks.

That's cool - it's the kind of thing they set in a glass case at shopping malls so that kids have something to watch while their parents shop. Maybe, for a permanent version, it could trigger lights and noises instead of fireworks.

Yeah, if it hit a hammer that rang a bell or something, it would be cool. @ Jollex, Nice ball machine.

Very nice, if only there was a way to reset the fireworks. You could have 8 of them on a spindle and a switch so they rotate every time a ball goes past. Sorry to nag, but how long until the results of the TGKTR2 are out?
