A simple minecart switcher, invented by fustyWumpus. The idea is that the minecart will briefly stop, then carry on. If the rider does nothing, it will continue on its way; if the rider pushes a button, it will (hopefully) go a different direction. One flaw is that the button turns the switch for only two seconds. By adding T flip-flops, the period of time the track is switched could then be increased. That's another video...

A slightly better design is at http://picasaweb.google.com/eric.hain... - the "pausing" station is situated so that you can see the booster cart coming and so can press the button at the right time. The plan view, with an underlying grid to make it easier to build this setup yourself, is at http://picasaweb.google.com/eric.hain...
