Hey, Graham here from Core Electronics. When i first stumbled onto a YouTube video of a Solarbotics Marble Machine Kit, I moved heaven and earth to become Solarbotics distributors in Australia. We stock both Marble Machine Kits variants; the classic "solar" version and battery powered model. They are made from wonderfully laser cut timber that is easy to assemble and looks sensational on your desk be it at work or on the hobby bench.
Solarbotics has kits for any skill level, as long as you're not scared of a soldering iron (which we can teach you to use)! Nobody does documentation better which means you won't be left wondering how to put these parts together.
They've been operating for more than 15 years focused on BEAM robotics. Solarbotics know what they are doing very well, and you'll see from their online documentation, video, and photos that they want to bring you the best products they can.
These kits make for perfect geek gifts or instant desk cred. If you'd like to talk more about these products, then get in touch with us, we're Australian Solarbotics resellers and are here to help via 02 4058 2818 or email.
You build it, you turn it on, and ...it has other ideas. A finger extends, and turns itself off just as quickly as you turn it on. Weird and wonderful, it's a physical description of many aspects of life (how's that for the beginning of an artsy interpretation?).
Construct your own hypnotic marble-coaster with this superb Solarbotics kit. Watch as the marbles are cycled through synchronised mechanical arms using nothing more than laser-cut wood and a single motor.
The battery pack edition of the Marble Machine kit has splendid electromechanical appeal, delivering 8 steel balls down a laser-cut wood frame. Unlike its solar-powered cousin, it’s ready to run at your command.
Solarbotics Solar GraviTrack Marble Machine Kit is their newest addition to the Marble-Drop mechanism family.
