  • Check this video out

    This was emailed to me and is very cool in my opinion and quite imaginative if you ask me.

    To explain the video, it is a cg animation of a machine that plays music using ball bearings. It's quite ingenious. Any idea of the source Drizzid?

        Honestly, I do not know I will take a look at the email and see if I can get any more info and I will post it here.

          The following is the only info I could get reguarding the video. It's a bit late now and I don't have the energy to redearch it any further.


          Subject: Music maker

          This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between the
          Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of
          Engineering at the University of Iowa. Amazingly, 97% of the machines
          components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of
          Bancroft Iowa, yes farm equipment!
          It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration,
          and tuning before filming this video but as you can see it was WELL worth
          the effort. It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at
          the
          University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.

            It's CGI - that info is bogus. (still amazing though!)

                  I don't understand how anyone could believe that's real. I'd like to think that it's maybe just because I've worked in 3D that I recognise it as CGI, but it's bloomin' obvious! :)

                        A bit of trivia, it's also the cover of a programming book.

                          I knew it was familiar looking. I saw it at Frys displaying a big TV that they keep behind the nose piece of their space shuttle :)

                          Even if you can't tell by looking at the shading and texture, look at the physics no way would that work. Rube Goldberg was a genius but he spent over a million trys to get his machine to work :/
