Description
A mechanical marvel: an ingenious kit to make a plywood marble run with a motorised lift to keep the marbles in motion. Compelling to watch, the marbles roll through a 2m helical track before being lifted within the adjoining tower to begin the journey all over again. Recalling the soaring Victorian iron-work of gasometers: an engineering marvel that developed in the early 1800s with the development of gas technology, becoming iconic iron forms in the 19th and 20th-century industrial landscape. Created in laser-cut plywood the kit’s pieces cleverly slot together; add glue to make the model sturdy and link paper straws to create channels for the marbles. Fun to build, sit back and watch your contraption roll. A mechanical marvel: an ingenious kit to make a plywood marble run with a motorised lift to keep the marbles in motion.
