This is a preview of Clockwork, my latest K'nex ball machine (previously known as Automated K'nex Ball Machine), coming later this summer. This is in every respect my largest, most complex K'nex creation ever. With nearly 40,000 pieces and 400 feet of track so far, Clockwork dwarfs all of my previous structures. Its computer-controlled lift mechanism is one-of-a-kind, and it features many new element designs, as well as computerized LED balls.

i want this in my room 
I absolutely plan to! The only problem is, this machine is so much more complex than Blue Fox, I don't even know where to begin filming such a video. While filming Blue Fox, I could simply flip all of the path switchers ahead of time to make it go the most efficient route. The problem here is the computer-controlled crane, which drops balls at one of 3 paths completely at random. Maybe I can reprogram it specifically for that video so it has a pattern to its drop locations. We'll see.
Once this is done, you should do a video like Blue Fox with one ball going through every path.
That has never happened, no. I am always very careful to build my indoor (and outdoor) structures extremely strong.
