Trial of the Spheres: Another Coby Anderson Creation

MSMS senior and Desoto County native, Coby Anderson, is at it again. Of all of the impressive things he's built during his time at MSMS, his latest creation - Trial of the Spheres - may be his most ambitious yet.

Using the K'Nex building system as his primary construction material, Coby has built what could be described as an analogue video game. Players compete by remotely driving robotic balls up a ten-level tower, with each level more challenging than the next.

This machine is only the latest of a series of constructs Coby has built over the last two years. You can see more of his creations by clicking here, here, and here.
