Rotopault Kinetic Sculpture Is Mezmerizing

About 30 seconds after I clicked play on this video of Brad Litwin's latest kinetic sculpture, Rotopault, I said "cool" and flicked my mouse to close the window. And then I just kept watching. It does the same thing over and over again: Launches a ball as it rotates, then catches the ball as it swings back around, without ever missing. Incredibly simple, but for some reason incredibly hypnotic, I think because the sounds it makes as it goes through the motions are precisely rhythmic. [Brad Litwin via BBG]

@nutbastard: I bought a Segway with my last check. Then I tried to whip a shitty on the littering of hondos I had left over from the first 3 checks, but it didn't work very well.

I must need more hundreds. Next paycheck!
