Just been tipped off about this flying ball-bearing music machine (thanks Ben!). Would be great to combine this with the BeatBearing somehow, there’s a lot of possible design variations…
BEARINGS GLOCKEN is a musical instrument that automatically performs a glockenspiel using steel ball for bearings, said to be the world’s most perfect sphere on earth.
The steel ball is finished into a nearly perfect sphere, and has the property of uninformly bouncing back, over and over.
BEARINGS GLOCKEN uses this property in a musical instrument.

hi, just curious. may i know what is Sonic Arts roughly about? and what interesting things would you be able to learn from it?
Sonic art is essentially the same as `sound art’ (check the wikipedia entry)… for me it means the creation of new tools and instruments for manipulating sound. Hope that helps!
That is bloody excellent. Reminds me of Javier’s water droplet sequencer
