Marble Machine

Written by Xavier Gouchet - 09 march 2016 - no comments

I've already said that I'm a huge find of Animusic, especially Pipe's dream, which Intel have already built in real life.

Today, I've discovered this incredible Marble Machine, created by Wintergatan with wood gears, springs and lots of lego pieces to program the main melody. It uses thousands of marbles to play a combination of vibraphone, bass guitar and a cardboard based drumset.

You can watch the two parts making to see how he constructed the whole machine.
