    gotta admit, that is pretty cool. man i'd pass out if i had a headache and stumbled into that though.

    i watched one of the balls go from the top all the way through its cycle to the bottom. well done.

    Yes!! What is that song called?

    It's (at time of post) available here.

    edit: upon loading the mp3 in quicktime I see that the meta data refers to it as the PeeWee Herman Theme Song. That makes sense, and since I never watched the show, explains why I didn't know that.

    Wow, that's impressive! I'll have to try it in the morning. 2 AM eyes don't work that well.

    Not sure what the music is, but it is the same music they used for that "If MS had designed the iPod packaging" video which was stuck in my head for ages and I'd just been able to get rid of..........:rolleyes:

    it was on rocketboom.com a few month ago as "blue ball machine".

    somebody also posted a desaster where one of the scientists got kicked of his stand and shreddered to death in the machine. how sad.......

    heh, i like how one of the stick figures does all the work while the other stands there. he demonstrates proper lifting technique too.
    another stickman gets his head removed by the machine and it turns into a blue ball and into the system. too funny.

    the music is perfect for it. my 3 year old just saw it and said "you got blue balls?" i died laughing, of course he has no idea what that means in other terms but it was a priceless reply none the less, and had to be shared.

    I could sit and watch this machine all day

    Note: Separate thread merged.

    I got it here. It can be tiled horizonatally and vertically and will match up perfectly in either direction!

    I figured you'd managed to build a perpetual motion machine. I guess this is close.

    I'll admit it's pretty cool, but I've never been much of a fan of blue balls.

    Near the top, just to the right of center, is a stick figure man who keeps losing his head. :)

    In the upper left quandrant, just above the horizontal laser-portation beam, balls are being zapped upward and into oblivion. So where do new balls keep coming from, to maintain the steady state? It took me a bit of staring to spot it.
