The magic sideways jumping ball


No modifications to the pieces this time. Just some balls balanced on the cogs before the start.

Similar constructs can be used to unleash multiple balls at once, or catch and later release a ball.


Ha ha! That’s a cool application. I assume it only works once, but it lets information travel a long horizontal distance very quickly. Neat, Rob!


Rob. The Cool New Uses for Existing Parts Ninja! :smiley:


I’m late to the party here, but this is so cool! I’m going to set it up like this for my boys and enjoy their reactions!
