This was really fun to build! The instrument assembly of the Marble Machine X has been a long design process since i had to finally commit to this specific instrument placement.
Also addressing last weeks controversial kinetic fingers :), your feedback nudged that part in a good direction, so thanks for that!

If you ask me you can't put enough kinetic fingers on this thing.
DeSinc Vuosi sitten
"kinetic fingers, no fingers, both is fine!" happens to be a factually incorrect statement and you need to ignore people who say things like that. the fingers, as you outlined with great detail in the last video, are essential visual components to the machine and must be completed. are you insane, actually listening to these people that haven't seen your vision? just make the damn things before anyone can disagree, they will see you're right when they are all finished

Martin, if you ever run into lots of welding on round stock specifically, might I bring ur attention to a rotary welding table? Just a thought. Those welds are in another league from your firsts, and the machine is looking absolutely beautiful!

That moment when you de-branded, i was like, OMG this is my brother in blood. i'm a fan from the kinetic fingers, coz, you know, visual is everything in the modern history, and how the ppl will be able to see what they´re listening? the full history of this marble machine is a piece of art.

I like the Idea of having something Visual, but the Cinetic Fingers are wayy to sloppy in my Oppinion. Somebody in the comments suggested making something, that is based around of these Piano hammers, that would look kind of cool

1.3 million subs is a criminally low number for content like this. It baffles me that people freak out when Kim Kardashian gets a new dog while amazing things like this are happening. The project is incredible, and I know it will sound sublime when it’s done. I always look forward to your videos man. Excellent work

I think the off the shelf drum parts need a bit of improvement, specifically that they look a bit crowded and I think it doesn’t quite fit the aesthetic.

Real life has me finally getting to watch this. I am glad you are staying true with what you have to express in your heart man. Don't let negative criticism get to you. This is unique and it is you. Do what you feel. They can build their marble machines how they wish when they build their own. As I have been saying for a few years now. Keep it up, take your time, get it right. We are here to watch you build this, not build it for you. Looking forward to watching the next vids.

I guess I'm in the minority with opinions on the kinetic fingers. I thought when I first saw them that they looked cool and they'd be an awesome kinetic focal point for the sculpture. You've gotta have some big movement along those lines, because a lot of the rest of it is so small it can't be seen with the naked eye when it's far away from people on stage. I'm really excited to see them all in action!

I think "Kinetic Fingers" is a great name for a band.
onlythistube Vuosi sitten
I guess the "creep" factor with the fingers is according to the familiar "fingery" look... Maybe instead use only one curved element or perhaps remove one joint... I agree with the argument, that the audience will have more visual feedback on the sounds played... It is your project in the end :) Just my 50 cents put into a simple comment, which is nothing compared to the passion, work and attention to detail invested by yourself or your team. Enjoy the journey and thank you for sharing!

To be honest.... The fingers is cool because it gives of a steam-punky industrial vibe to it... Hope it turns out how you visions it..

When you say you want to make the machine more sculptural and visual, have you thought of some kind of embedded lighting. Light sources from inside of the machine could contribute to a better perception of it's moving parts.

Martin, you worry too much about people's opinion of the kinetic fingers. I believe, and I'm sure most others do, that whatever decisions you take will be the right ones. If people have not learned to trust you for all this time and for all the work you have done, they don't deserve you ;)

Det jag oroats av gällande fingrarna är inte att de skall vara onödiga utan att de är ivägen för att spela manuellt med de fina spakarna ovanför. Ser fortfarande inte riktigt hur det skall gå till.

No need fingers, put little mirrors on the ends of levers and put lassers, they will be shooted when the keys were activated.

I was wondering. What is actual weight of Marble Machine X and what should be the final one? It must be already quite heavy and could be issue by traveling and world tour. Or?
KOB Vuosi sitten
100% agree with your point about the utility of the fingers. For me, I'd like them to snap the way you originally intended, but either way, they will create the two-sense experience you're looking for.

Absolutely Genius! Love it! I've built a lot of cool and intricate things in my lifetime, but this makes everything I have ever done look like child's Keep up the awesome work, and just ignore the plastic people that come in these channels with nothing better to do than to say negative stuff about people like you that make them feel insecure because they don't have the skill and/or willpower to get out and try to do something fantastic themselves. You get idiots like that on every post sooner or later, and most of them are just disrespectful kids or self serving egocentrics that have no place talking about anyone at least until they get some decency and wisdom.

I just went from here to the 'Ants Canada' channel, where a clever ant keeper has colonies of ants running through tubes and living in glass enclosures. You could probably rig something up where a passing ant blocks a light beam temporarily and sounds a random musical note. Maybe if the vibrations were allowed to be picked up by the ants themselves, they could learn to communicate with us.

Maybe kinetic fingers will serve theirs purpose, yet still the idea seem to be a little clumpy in comparison to engineering beauty of the whole ;-). Yet you surprised us in many areas so, I believe... :-)

The thing that is truly amazing about having a series this long is watching you go through the very steep part of learning curves of a large number of disparate skills, from CAD to Welding. It is inspiring and very helpful to watch your struggle to grasp concepts, learn both how and why different steps are needed and then reflect on your own learning. As a teacher, it is rare to be able to show the learning cycle so clearly. Thank you for your work and thank your for sharing your successes, and more importantly your setbacks!

making the fingers ridge an the agle much lower would be huge improvement bth up close and from distance much more machine/animusic that way love the base for the instruments

Given your skills & confidence working with metal is increasing as this project continues do you think you would use more metal in future projects? Or do you think the plywood still offers something as a material apart from looks? Plywood is clearly a good prototype material. It's so exciting seeing the MMX nearing completion. Great video as ever.

How about putting RGB LED to the fingers? Tacy yes but its often rather dark on stage siting 100 meters away you wont see the fingers move but you will see the LED move ;). Or make special marble with a small LED in so you can follow the flow

Regarding a straight weld. I would suggest to take the rod short. Due to the long rod it swings and wobbles, thus it is harder to control.

Re: People saying the kinetic fingers have no utility: If you look up videos of marching bands/drum lines, they will very frequently have large feathers or plumes sticking out of their hats. These feathers/plumes have a functional purpose, while they don't help the performers play better at all, but they do broadcast exactly where the performers are looking. Which puts a greater emphasis on uniformity as anything out of place is exaggerated. Sometimes the plumes stick straight up from the front of the hats (as it was in my high school marching band), and sometimes they stick out backwards (E.G. The Top Secret Drum Corps)
