Cataclysm – K’Nex Ball

Ball Machines are fun.  This one is insane.

Ball-1

You might remember this guy from his ace Skee Ball machine. Well, that was not his first adventure into crazy K’Nex contraptions.  No, he made this 28,000 piece Ball machine that has 6 different paths to the bottom.

Crazy.

Again, he spent over a year building this monster, and again, it’s more of a display of awesome engineering then an actual toy.  My only question for him is “Do you have them both made at the same time?  Or do you make something, play with it for awhile, then dismantle it to start the next project?”

Again, here’s a video of it in action:

K’Nex Skeeball

skee ball!

Over 28,000 pieces, over 1 year build time, more a feat of DIY engineering than anything else.  This is awesome. (I used to use that word a lot, but I’ve curtailed it recently, in this case, I mean it).

Instrucables user Shadowman39 really went all out to build this monster.  Everything in it is made using K’Nex, and everything is mechanical, yes, even the scoreboard.

Wait, it get’s better, it’s coin operated.  AND, it only takes Quarters!
