A friend sent this to me in .wmv form, and I thought
this group might find it interesting. So, I located the
YouTube counterpart here:



But, read this narrative that came with the video:



The Mother of All Doohickeys
More than Cool!

Interesting! The ultimate of having too much time on your hands!
Read this first, then open the attachment, and watch.

This is almost unbelievable. See how all of the balls wind up in
catcher cones.

This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between
the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School
of Engineering at the University of Iowa .. Amazingly, 97% of the
machine ' s components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation
Equipment of Bancroft , Iowa . Yes, farm equipment!
It took the team a combined 13,029 hours (6.26 years) of set-up,
alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video but as
you can see,
it was WELL worth
the effort.

It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the
University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.


Thanks....

The narrative is completely false. It's a computer animation.

So it's not the historical narrative that you say is false,
it's the CGI subject text.

Except for technological and jargon advancements,
(how something is accomplished now, as opposed
to how it was accomplished previously, and a new
jargon term to supersede the old), seems like the
same thing to me.

"animation" then....
