Saw this and figured people would appreciate it on here. Marble machine designed to play a song. Very well done.

Thanks, Jeff. That was awesome! Loved the marbles rolling on the floor at the end.

One thing I noticed – there is a shot around 3:00 of the mechanism that triggers the marbles falling on the glockenspiel bars. Two of the notes are labelled “H” :-)

And the build videos are pretty cool too.

Yes, have seen it at least 10 times and ot makes me happy just thinking of the concept of someone making a machine that complex just for fun and joy. Makes the world a greater place to be.
Imagine mixint the two most fantastic materials in the world: wood and Lego. Cant go wrong!
