    I like it, just a shame it turned into an advert :)

    Agreed. I like it a lot too, but not the advert.

    Uh, “dauntingly,” OP?:) Did you get out your thesaurus, today?

    The ad was okay, but it somewhat didn’t keep up with how the tune actually sounds at certain points. Also, for an ad, it was waaaay too long.

    word of the day on reader's digest (does it still exist?) :D

    i don't mind the fact that they use it for an ad, because the ad part comes at the very end and it's not very intrusive, so you can altogether ignore it.

    but the forest, the idea and the execution was great. i wonder if they just left it there so people can just go there and play it (although probably one wouldn't hear most of the music from a single spot)

    Yes, the ball rolled about too much to keep accurate time, plus the dimples ;), but it is a nice idea, and very Japanese.

    I would hope it would stay as a permanent "exhibit", considering the work and trees that went into it.

    Bach was the Hal Leonard of his day...

    Actually, Johann Schop wrote the tune and Bach wrote an arrangement for Schop's piece, e.g., Bach harmonized and orchestrated Schop's melody.

    That was definitely great. :)

    I like how Pythagoras Switch made kids in Japan grow up to become these crazy geeks who love everything that has to do with mechanical awesomeness such as this!

    I had to stop half-way through, for fear I might kill some stranger the next time I hear those 7 notes. :eek:

    I'm sure everyone has already seen this before, but seems fitting to bring it up - the Honda Cog advert - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ve4M4UsJQo

    Yes yes, give us the time stamp. I may have posted it, but I didn't watch it beyond the first 3 minutes this time!



    FAKE EDIT: Nevermind. Just watched the entire thing. It amazes me every time! Is it the clip that starts at around 4:13?? That one goes for like a minute, and you can see a marble go uphill!!

    It gets a little surreal when they start dancing!

    If it maintains speed, they're onto something. :cool:
