All Wintergatan Music is now free to use as video and streaming background music, download the free license here:
Same license applies to all internet platforms, so not only FIpost, also for streaming on twitch etcetera.
In this episode i am trying to make the Marble Machine X play 20000 Marbles in a row without fail, mixed results. But with some rule changes we won in the end :)
Have a great day everyone and good luck with what you are doing / Martin

Marble Machine X is like the Binky of the music world.

The overrotation doesn't help with reducing the force, it only increases the marbles' moment of inertia, which causes it to accelerate more slowly. Friction also doesn't help, because there is no friction, when nothing is moving. What helps is that the marble path is winding, which diverts parts of the force towards the walls, rather than in the direction of the path.

That over rotation trick won't help with the pressure. You are using a dynamic phenomenon to counter a static phenomenon. And if my rigid body dynamics classes have taught me one thing, that doesn't work ^^ I believe the increase in performance that was observed anyway came from two other factors that you changed between Prototype 2 and 3 ( you changed more than one parameter, you mad scientist! ): - the increased smoothness comes from the paths having a lower curvature (wider turns) - the decreased static pressure comes from the tracks having much more drastic changes in direction (I mean sections that are very far from vertical, compared to all of them being rather close to vertical on P1 and P2) So in 4 words, wider and longer turns. These are mere hypothesis of course, and would require further testing. Hope this helps, Regards

As the speed of the marble is getting slowed, did you test it at low tempo, when tubes are empty ? May be this situation will never occur... Just wondering

So the marbles all spin at the same speed, but with their different effective diameters, they cover more distance per rotation, due to the smaller effective diameter..

By the way, you should AVOID TO USE THIS IKEA SCALE, I have one since years and it is really not handy especially for doing this kind of precise measures. When you had 1-3 grams, the weight doesn’t move and you have to press it then release for let it give you the correct weight. I use it 2 times by day since 15 years to give the right food quantity to my cat. PS: 15 it’s good for this kind of cheap device so I’m confused now.....🤷‍♂️

Keep up the awesome work!

15:40 after Wilson emptied the valve, how many marbles were left in it? You need to subtract this from the 70, because that's not part of your stockpile of marbles you can use when no others arrive from the top (e.g. because some other instrument steals them all).

Can you really count the marbles that failed do to the temporary tape failing as an actual failure of the machine? You shouldn't be counting that against the reliability of the machine.

When you can get the machine to faithfully re-create the work of "Double Trouble" in SRV's "Riviera Paradise," I will be truly impressed (I don't ask for much, do I?). I won't ask for it to re-create the work of Stevie Ray himself. Impossible, and to try borders on sacrilege, even if imitation is the highest form of flattery. I'm kidding, of course ... Good of you to allow sharing of your music. And anything that shames the Never-Napsters, I'm for.

So I can remove the diffuser as well put it somewhere else. I need to sand some parts a bit and the middle is slightly lighter than the outside, because that wood has not been oiled, like the second-hand tables I used were oiled, but the bed wasn't. So maybe I'll do that to make color even, but it doesn't bother me too much

Also those runner wheels on the belts will not remove resonating but instead shift it into a higher frequenzy. Although that may be enough to solve your problem.

Klauz Wayne Uukausi sitten
I'm a little worried about your new wooden parts. Since they basically absorb all the weight and impulse, they may wear down quite fast. Since wear on these parts will directly affect the height of the marble chain inside, you should keep a close eye on that.
ShimdisBack Uukausi sitten
Hi Wintergatan, thanks for all your videos, hope the project is going well. To solve the issue with the belts I think you can simply pierce some holes in it to stop the belts entering in resonance. If there is tiny holes all across the belt, the vibration will not be able to run across it. Hope it can help you. Have a great day, full blessings

Thanks for free music. I think your math is off. It has bothered me the last few videos, I think it is your formula in excel. 20000 with 61 fails is 19939 success. 19939/20000 is 99.695%

The over-rotation effect slows down the marble because it needs to rotate faster to cover the same amount of track, so a larger percentage of the kinetic energy goes into rotational movement, and less in linear movement. But that only matters during movement, not in the static pressure.
Captain Caveman
Captain Caveman Uukausi sitten
Exactly. The marble is rolling on a smaller part of itself so it needs more rotations to travel the same amount. It's like when turning something on a lathe. You have to spin the part faster when cutting smaller diameters and slower on larger diameters to achieve the correct surface footage per minute.

I imagine this is how it feels to make the first piano all those years ago in Europe. The piano prides itself in being able to reciprocate the wide range of octaves and keys that only a orchestra can provide. Hence it is a great solo instrument. With the bass, drums, and everything you're doing, that's exactly it.

The reliability score is incorrect 20000 marbles tested with 19939 successful gives a reliability of 19939/20000 = 0.99695 on a scale from 0 to 1. To convert to percent you multiply this by 100 and get 99.695%, but note that spreadsheets do this step for you when you format the number as percent.

Two thoughts that I had while watching this asside from that it is awesome is that 1. Having labeling or some index on the programing wheel sheets so that you dont have to count spaces between pins could be helpful. 2. I don't know that you would use it for a song but you didnt specifically test releasing 2 marbles simultaniously to see if that causes a failure, I view that more as a test in case the progam wheel incorectly programed. Awesome work, please keep it up.
