    That was fantastic - we saw it yesterday. I've thought that an espresso/calliope machine would be a great challenge: perhaps someone will build one someday.

    Wintergatan - Marble Machine (music instrument using 2000 marbles)

    This is pretty impressive, both from an engineering and musical aspect.

    I remember watching this a few years ago. Brillian machine, and a LOT of work!

    Certainly not new Mr Jack, in fact I think I posted the same link quite some time ago, did a search, could find no trace, so, thought wouldn't hurt to post again.
