It's the first clip with the basketball.

That's probably why I sound just like the violin in the video! Too much YouTube.

I didn't notice that when I watched this video. Recently I watched an X-Files episode which featured a similar device and thought to myself (ditto for the domino topple I saw on Youtube), these "machines" need to work reliably every time or they are not worth constructing. The ingenuity must include reliability or it's not ingenuity. The first time I ever realised it was upon seeing the ball-bearing clock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GDNV-eYaKU
