Computer Controlled Marble Sorter

Computer Controlled Marble Sorter

Depending on the color of the marble, this elaborate computer controlled marble sorter will open a particular gate to select a marble of similar color. Further on down the line marbles are combined into sets and then deposited back into the hopper where the process starts anew. It’s very mesmerizing in a zen garden meets executive plaything way.
