Rube Goldberg Machine Using Marbles and Magnets

Kaplamino's "Magnets and Marbles!"

YouTube user Kaplamino showcases his latest video featuring a sort of Rube Goldberg machine that functions entirely with marbles and magnets, performing some remarkable, well-timed tricks.

First, I had to buy marbles and magnets on ebay, I waited 2 weeks for the delivery. Then I made a first screen link but it was bad because of a format problem on my camera. The movie was jerky and the lighting was terrible because I tried to use artificial lights (very bad idea ).

Also, this screen link was supposed, at the beginning, to be a big machine in one take on my table, but I give up after 50 fails, maybe RGM is not my thing. Maybe I just need to try with more reliable tricks ^^

And the last reason : I'm lazy and perfectionnist, with those two things it's hard to finish a project, because I have this idea in my mind since 3 months maybe, and I work really hard for only 4 minutes at the end (domino builder is a hard job) .But trust me there is more work in this project than you can see in this video, because of how many times I start from scratch.
