The latest LEGO Great Ball Contraption (GBCs) has been uploaded to YouTube. While it’s by no means the most elaborate GBC we’ve seen , it’s certainly nothing to sneeze at either.
Posted by desiredusername, this video offers 7 minutes and 56 seconds of robotic LEGO bliss as mini soccer ball and basketballs are transported through this plastic block, tube, and the occasional battery-powered gauntlet and/or motor circus. The build actually includes 20 different GBCs connected in one solid loop. There’s even a dump truck on an elliptical path assisting in this city of miniature sports equipment.
Monster’s Inc.’s infamous childhood bedroom door factory comes to mind when watching this LEGO-engineering manifesto. For the highlights, be sure to watch the very beginning when the dump truck starts at off and at 5:00 for fun basketball hoop shots and the awesome ferris wheel contraption.
