Using nothing more than marbles, magnets and some wooden blocks, this guy has created a wonderfully creative machine.
This creation is the brainchild of Youtuber Kaplamino, whose channel has all sorts of other creations for your viewing pleasure.
It also has more than a striking resemblance to a computer game I used to play, called The Incredible Machine.
I find something both exciting and soothing about the simplicity of his machine, especially when you can see the perfect timing where two marbles hit each other while in motion to reach the destination.
It just goes to show how a little creativity is all that is needed to create something special.
Bonus: If you liked this video, check out our previous video showing someone who built an incredible musical machine from marbles (it’s mindblowing).
