Lego Assembly Line

One of the great things about LEGO is that you can make just about anything out of those little plastic blocks. This includes a machine that lets you make other things: an assembly line.

A Japanese YouTube user going by the name of akiyuky has created the “LEGO Great Ball Contraption,” a Rube Goldberg-esque complicated machine that, as the name suggests, moves little balls around in intricate ways.  The video runs for seven minutes, which gives you an idea of how detailed the device is. It’s even got robotic arms.
