This is a worthwhile video of the Marble Machine built by Martin Molin of the band Wintergatan. It is very impressive and I wish I could build things like this, but I can't build anything, particularly not meaningful relationships.

The Marble Machine is an elaborate hand-cranked wooden machine that uses 2,000 marbles to make music. As the marbles roll through the machine they strike drum pads, a bass guitar, a vibraphone, and other elements to produce sound.

Hit the jump for the video.
