Part idea: Randomizer


#1

I came up with an idea of adding a randomiser. Has anyone else thought of this addition?
It would introduce the possibility of lots of probability maths activities, Pacsal’s triangle and more.
I would then need to collect marbles at the base using vertical capture rather than the existing horizontal capture, to show the varying heights.
Here’s one example of what I mean:

Thanks for the idea and for the link. I bet the vertical capture could be accomplished with some 3D printed parts that fit onto the pegs and make the vertical walls.

As it is, you should be able to do a Pascal’s triangle with 4 layers, since there are 10 bits that come with the kit. But there’s nothing to capture the balls vertically like you suggested. It would be cool to see. Thanks!
