Inspired by the CGI video series Animusic, Stefan “g000ze” of Lets Make Robots and his sons built this Marblephone. Using a bunch of marbles, some solenoids, and bars from a xylophone, he built an electromechanical instrument to play out tunes by dropping marbles onto the xylophone bars. It looks like the piece is actually a few years old, and he is just getting back to adding an automatic conveyor belt to recycle the dropped marbles. Looks fun!
