Ok, here's an awesome creation from someone who incidentally has a name that's suspiciously similar to the name of one of us:

Marble Adding Machine [youtube]

He's also made some other cool things:

Marble Machine 1
Marble Machine 2

You should probably look at his website if you like this sort of thing.

And if you've watched all of those, here's something completely different (but still very awesome): Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

I found these on Boingboing and digg.

Very cool...now I've got to mail that to a lot of Math/CS folks. [Smile]

Personally, I'd be fine with being woken up at 0200 for that! Of course, I was still up then, but semantics... =P

There are three things you can be sure of in life: Death, taxes, and reading about fake illnesses online...

Maybe I'm missing something. How does a sped up video of a girl dancing relate to the marble machine links in the title post?

Agreed. Fault interrupt on connection here, too.

He's obviously talking about the Harder, Better, Faster video [Roll Eyes] chill out.
