The sight and sound of Alex Pikkert’s newest creation, the Magical Marble Sorting Machine with its symmetrical design and glitter painted marbles, is a delight for the senses. The best part is it apparently sorts marbles by color!
Each time Alex pushes a button on the lower level, a servo kicks a marble out of a copper wire storage ramp into the marble selector tunnel. After a moment of secret happenings in the tunnel with a pink mystery bit and the Arduino module, the marble is sent on a trip around the MDF wood marble transport disk until it is kicked off by a servo into a bowl with a pleasant plink sound. Let’s watch it again and again!
Alex promises to reveal the mystery bit and Arduino code soon. He is waiting for someone to guess correctly, so leave a comment on his project with your best guess as to how it works!
