    With a mechanism thingy that took me like 3-4 months to build with several non-working designs :P

    Somehow similar like how a gearing is working in a car, only automatically triggered ;)

    These machines keep getting bigger and bigger and more and more complex. One day, one of them will collapse under the weight of its own awesomeness and create a k'nex singularity.

    That day cannot be far off . . .

    This is another incredible ball machine from Sorunome! I loved the whole thing, but was especially impressed by the elements at 5:12, 6:10, 7:01, and 9:00. Great job! ;-D

    By the way, that's a lot of Rubik's cubes at 3:30! o.o

    Hey, if I see an element I like, I still find it impressive whether or not it is an old element. :-) Great machine!
