I talk about gadgets all the time. This time I think I came across the king of all gadgets.
Swedish Musician Martin Molin has built a massive handmade music box. The wooden device uses 2,000 marbles to create a complex piece of analog dance music.
You must watch the video to understand the genius of what Modin created. It features a kick drum, snare, vibraphone, and electric bass. It’s all powered by a hand crank.
Molin officially unveiled his “Marble Machine” on Feb. 29 on a YouTube video. All the tech and music publications are writing about it.
It’s being called, The Rube Goldberg-like instrument. Molin plays bass, percussion and a vibraphone. The rolling marbles makes the music.
Too bad the Marble Machine can’t go on tour. Maybe, someone will figure out a way.
