Guy Builds Room-Sized K'Nex Machine Marble Maze

knex-marble-maze.jpg

This is the 40,000 piece, room-sized K'Nex marble maze 'Clockwork' built by Youtube user austron. God, I wish I had a room to dedicate to K'nex builds. I live in a studio. Do you know what that means? It means I'm in the same room as my roommate when he changes. I could draw his naked body with my eyes closed, bro.

This is Clockwork, my fifth major K'nex ball machine, and my largest and most complex K'nex structure to date. It took 8 months to build, has over 40,000 pieces, over 450 feet of track, 21 different paths, 8 motors, 5 lifts, and a one-of-a-kind computer-controlled crane, as well as two computer-controlled illuminated K'nex balls.

Not gonna lie, if I had the money to build a room-sized K'nex marble maze, I'd probably spend all that dough on something else. You know, LIKE MAKING LASTING MEMORIES. "You mean drugs and alcohol?" It's like you can read my mind. Quick -- what number am I thinking of? "Penis." Damn you're good.

Hit the jump for a video of the thing in action.

Thanks to legendaryxatdx, who claims he bought a house with a special room dedicated to nothing but food preparation. Man, I wish I had a kitchen. :/

    FAKE!!!!

    This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

    This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max got wooden marbles with names on them from Baja, and then had to track the person down and arrest him for murder.

  • Oh my god it's Daisy!
