Ever seen a marble play music via bouncing through a xylophone-and-banana Rube Goldberg machine?
Well I have now
Just look at it!
Try this one. It was boinged several years ago. And it is real.
The computer generated one had a bit too much uncanny valley for me.
Its a great one-off song.
A lot of folks here are still annoyed at Wintergaten for his Marble Machine X project debacle.
Now you’re talking! Thanks for that - amazing work
Oh no, I missed that - worth summarizing or not worth bringing up old beef?
This is certainly delightful, but you do know they’re computer generated…? (“No actual marbles were harmed in the making of this…”)
Found a good discussion.
He spent a year or so on the project posting a video every week on the progress. It was a nice project to watch drung COVID isolation time. But kept re-designing and changing directions striving fo “perfection”. Right when it looked like it was almost ready to play songs he just dropped the whole thing.
The motion of the marbles sure isn’t.
