    @pumba62,
    You`re right. A true Rube Goldberg device actually accomplishes a specific task beyond propagating its own operation. This thing, while interesting, only moves balls around in a complex circuit.

    it amazes me what lego can do... too bad it`s so dang expensive.. I can`t wait for cheap 3d printers and 3d printer material to become available so we can make quadra-ba-jillions of them
