Lego Ball Factory Puts Your Meager Efforts To Shame

When it comes to building wondrous contraptions with humble Lego bricks, Youtube user akiyuky doesn't like to mess around. His latest device employs dump trucks, a train, multiple Ferris wheels, a robotic crane, and a few hundred soccer balls and basketballs. But to what end? You'll have to watch to find out.

It isn't technically a Rube Goldberg device, as it doesn't actually accomplish anything. But it's still quite the spectacle to watch. A bit of programming care of the Mindstorms kits keeps everything humming - and it's certainly more work than anything I've ever built.

If you're aching to learn more (and can read Japanese), hop over to Akiyuky's blog to see more.
