12 Fantastically Complex and Mostly Pointless Lego Great Ball Contraptions
Three electric motors, 17 pneumatic pistons, three servos, and almost 60 inches of Lego conveyor belts power this GBC by Quanix, which looks like a miniaturized version of a car factory. Robotic arms pick up individual balls and load them onto palettes which are shunted around the tiny factory on conveyor belts. It’s a joy to watch in motion, but with more than 3,000 parts it also looks like it was a nightmare to build, especially when it came to routing and organizing all of the pneumatic tubing so it wasn’t in the way.
