Marbles and Magnets Video

I’ve always been fascinated with how things work and the work which goes into making things work. I suppose some of the curiosity comes from my dad who was a mechanical engineer by training and a businessman by nature.

When I was young one of my favorite toys was the Meccano set. I was fortunate to have had several and would create stuff all the time, often losing the little nuts in the bedroom carpet much to the consternation of my mother and her vacuum.

When I was emailed this video this morning I watched it intently, revelling in the fun it would have been to make Marbles and Magnets do what they do just for the sake of making it. The video has been around a while I understand, but it was new to me. And maybe new to you too.
