A musical instrument based on 2,000 marbles

Via bored panda.

Martin Molin, of the Swedish band Wintergatan, built this machine, which uses 2,000 marbles to make music.  It looks like an Animatron video, but it is real.  It is made out of manually-operated levers, pulleys and wheels, mostly wood but including some Lego parts.

Hat tip to Avedon’s Sideshow.
