From a coffee table-sized replica of an NES controller to models of the Curiosity Rover, we've covered a lot of Lego-related goodness on Geek Tech. Today, however, we're going to introduce a spot of K'nex-flavored variety with this full-fledged, full-sized and fully-playable pinball machine.

According to its creator, an engineering student who goes by the name of pianoman667 on YouTube, this massive piece of awesome consists of around 17,000 K'nex parts. The only non-K'nex parts present within the machine are the rubber hands used in the launcher and the flippers.

While many of us would probably like to think that it took him a few years to come up with this masterpiece, it apparently did not. In pianoman667's Instructables page (he's known as Alocke over there), he explained that it only took him four months to construct the whole thing.

Sadly, if you're daydreaming about seeing an Arduino-powered scoreboard or fancy lighting on this pinball machine, it doesn't look like that's going to happen. On a more positive note, though, it does appear as though there's a possibility that he may release instructions on how to build some of the parts of his intricate creation.

The only thing left is for pianoman667 to square off in a K'nex building showdown with the creator of the K'nex skeeball machine!
