  1. Hi all, It's been a while since we have posted on here but we have been busy whipping up a new racing series for our marbles. We have made a few home improvements to our tracks after a bit of painting, gluing and nailing. PLus we have tried to improve some of the graphics that go with our videos. See below the first two videos of our new series. The first is a montage showing the initial stats of our marbles and the second is a head to head elimination race. Enjoy and feel free to make and constructive comments to help us improve. Thanks https://youtu.be/rRU5q6BDrQs https://youtu.be/BHPbsNOiih4
  2. HI all, It's been a while since we have posted here but here are a couple of our latest videos where we used hotwheels tracks to make drag lanes for a our marbles to compete in a head to head knock out. There are 2 videos. The first is a round of 16 and the second is the quarter finals and onwards. Enjoy... https://youtu.be/nnBHwNFkncc https://youtu.be/xSmt5kDU-LE
  3. In this video we race 16 marbles in a head to head knock out style race. We tried to add a bit more effort with extra cameras and B-roll of the races. Let me know what you think of the style of video? https://youtu.be/SfU5wxzDI2A
  4. Hi together, first I need to explain the german title: Jubiläumsedition just means jubilee edition I designed it to join this years special annivesary event "50 years of fischertechnik". That is why all the blue flags are spread around the marble run. Starting with the "A Tribute To Imperfection" project stage of 2014 I extended the marble run to have three linked tracks for marbles and a fourth track dedicated to ping-pong balls. The lifter for the ping-pong balls is driven by the glas marbles running through a 'mill' just as water drives mills along rivers. In 2014 already there was this type of mill but it just energized a small globe to turn slowly. And due to some problems of the 2014 construction I needed to redesign the mill as the arriving tracks now come in roughly 1 1/8 inch (30mm) lower. There is so much more to say, but I first need to find out about your gallery system. Stay tuned. Regards Hoody
  5. Hello all, there are some wonderful marble runs around here. Watching the video clips or galleries just shows ease or elegance running those. From my own experience I know that it sometimes is not so easy to well construct a marble run and that there is plenty of time spent. The more complex the run the more time it might take to get things working is my feeling. "A Tribute To Imperfection" started out January 2014 and was presented once end of September 2014. From there it was a continous evolution to "Jubiläumsedition" shown end of July 2015. But the story is not over. Next plan is May 2016 to show the final version. There is not much add-on planned but this time I will spend every effort to get every station, every effect working as reliably as possible. There are so many details that need attendance to avoid marbles spin off the tracks. How long does it take you from the first idea until the complete marble run works first time? How long does it take you until your construction is ready for reliable work on shows or exhibitions?
