=== Marble Machine: Crazy Cateyes improved === An improved version of this colorful and soundful Marble Machine, i took some maintenance and added a new path "the Marble Cage", this marble run path consists of a "BlackBox" (which is white) which holds and releases marbles at irregular intervals. Furthermore it has 2 lifters, 4 paths (nail board, slalom with tipping lever, bell track and clickclock tower, bottleneck), a tipover container for 150 marbles and a "Box of Sounds" filled with bells, gongs, springs, woodblocks, etc. Specs: - Building time: over 300 hours (including improvements) - Number of Marbles: ± 200 - Marble type: 17 mm (5/8") cat's eyes - Number of lifters: 2 (gear and crank) - Dimensions: 55 X 20 X 27 inch - Lighting: 22X Power LED modules This is my first video with my brand new Sony FDR-AX53 camcorder. It's capable of 4K resolution (but it's not needed yet because most portable devices hasn't 4k). I live in a PAL region, so it's only supports 50p (or 100p in slow motion). NOTE: I will upload the new sand marble race next week (friday 15th april). === The Marble Master === Please subscribe to see my newest Marble Machines and Rolling Ball Sculptures: http://www.youtube.com/user/jelleknikkers My Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/jelleknikkers My Twitter: http://twitter.com/JBakker83 My homepage: http://www.knikkerbaan.nl © Jelle's Marble Runs (all rights reserved) Do NOT copy and reupload this video without my permission!
For inquiries, please email BenRTardif@gmail.com Follow me on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bentardif/ Marble Mountain is a large marble machine still under construction. It consists of 25 sections that mesh together to form one kinetic sculpture. Every element is themed (or will be upon completion) to an aspect of my life or to something that I find interesting. Some of the elements include a roller coaster, ski jump, Times Square, Lombard Street, and a skatepark. It took 3 years to get to this point of being able to turn it on and watch it go, and I will continue to work on it and get it fully completed. A detailed history of the progress can be found at: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/marblemountainproject/ Facts: -It has a footprint of 12' x 8' and stands 8' tall -The material of the tracks and supports consist almost entirely of wood -Everything is custom-made from materials bought mostly from craft and hardware stores (mainly Michaels and Home Depot) -The lift is 11 feet long, holds 90 marbles at once, and rotates at 1 revolution per second (60 RPM) -It takes at least 250 marbles to keep it running without delay, but looks better with 300 -There are 32 possible paths for the marbles -There are 14 rockers that distribute the marbles onto the different paths -The first year and a half of construction happened in my apartment before moving to a small warehouse -The original design was smaller and not as cool, so a redesign took place making it much bigger and morphed into a half-conical shape with the lift right down the middle -I do know how much it cost to make thus far but even my wife doesn't know that number -It takes just under an hour to set up or tear down Marble Mountain -Since it is modular, I could remove a section and rebuild it as something else as long as the tracks matched up with the other pieces
