Shadowman39, an Instructables user, loves Skeeball, loves K’Nex, and apparently really loves mixing the two.
What you’re seeing above is a fully functional Skeeball machine. It uses normal motors, some paper for the counter, and everything else is K’Nex.
Here’s a video of it in action:
It took him more than a year to build and apparently he doesn’t value his time that much: Very soon he’s going to be breaking this thing back down into its component parts and possibly building something for DARPA or something.
Fortunately, he will be posting guides for building a few key components of the machine so at least those will be preserved. Somebody buy this guy replacement K’Nex so this monument to human achievement won’t be taken apart!
