Matthias's Marble Machines page(My take on rolling ball sculptures)
My Marble Machines are complicated and ingenious, but utterly useless pieces of toy machinery that automate the process of playing with marbles. With toys like these, mankind is free to pursue more productive ends, while leaving the playing with marbles to his trusty automated machine servants.
Alas, any productivity gained by this automation is generally offset by crowds of people who consider the machines to be entertaining!
