K’nex: Binary Counter Instructable

Programmers’ joke:

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who do not.

Get it?

10 is the number 2 in binary.

I made an Instructable for the path separator I designed for my ball machine Grid Tower II. The binary counter is my most complicated path separator. It separates balls while at the same time counting in binary. Below are the video and link to the Instructable.

K’nex: Grid Tower II

I built a K’nex ball machine that I call Grid Tower II. It has 1 network and 8 paths. The reason why it is called Grid Tower II is because it was originally based on my previous ball machine Grid Tower, but as I was building it, I decided to make it a castle-themed version of Grid Tower. I designed 2 of Grid Tower’s lifts, 1 of its path separators, and 15 of its elements! Below are some pictures and a video of Grid Tower II. See if you can spot the sloth and the binturong in the video! (Note: in the video, every time a new path starts, I move the binturong.)
