LEGO Ball Factory - some of the best LEGO engineering I've seen...

This guy makes some amazing stuff with Lego. The engineering and design behind this is pretty awesome and the fact that it's all done with Lego makes it even more awesome-y. I think the other videos in his channel show the inner workings of each module.

Uh oh I saw some misdeeds and ball jams im there. Work productivity has gone down and the corporate bean Counters are on the way. Damnit even the Legos have replaced the human workforce.

600 hours, holy ish!

Very impressive 7 minutes slightly diminished by a red ball and blue ball that were never filtered out. I had to do a project in high school that categorized colored balls and eliminated the ones that didn't fit what was needed. Fun stuff, but nowhere this level of complexity.

I know, but with all of those contraptions, you'd imagine he was going to have another one near the end that spit them out separately to show off. Maybe that's the current module being worked on

Unless he got discounts from the Lego factory, he must have one hell of a wallet...

They may not be swarming, but sets up a damn good filter to attract the good ones.


So much noise to produce so little, but in such an epic way.

That gave me a better understanding of the equipment used in a modern assembly line than a million hours of 'How It's Made'.
