Oh, we do love Rube Goldberg here on our corner of the Intertunnel. Hither and yon, upsy-daisy, to and fro, fruitless and wonderful. I’m hard-pressed to imagine a more masterful conglomeration of pointless and entertaining plastic as Austin’s K’Nex massive timewaster.
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.
