I saw this on hackaday and thought I'd post it here for anyone that doesn't follow that site. This is really incredible if you like woodwork and marble run.

Yea that's pretty good, make a nice noise. The rest of the site is worth looking at, I think I may have been there before.

When I was younger (actually, about five years or so ago), I would create marble runs that ran along the walls of my room.  I would use things like paper, dominoes, gears, wood, or any sort of toy I could find, pin or tape them to the wall, and see how long I could make it.

It started out as a minor distraction on a weekend, and slowly turned into a full blown hobby (as a precursor to instructables).  I wish I had taken video.  Some of them went on for minutes at a time before the ball came to a rest.
