I have just got this from a friend in Oz. and think a lot of you will enjoy watching it. Engineering types will be delighted as will people who like anything out of the ordinary.

Pretty amazing!

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 machines components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa.. Yes, farm equipment!

It took the team a combined 13,029 hours 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

Of course it's real, did you not read that they spent over 13,000 hours on it.

This is not real machinery it is Computer Animation. It is possible to buy DVD versions (2) and is very well made.
