Ball Machine

This was the first project I did during my 1st year at my Academy. The task was to build a machine in which a mouse ball will be transported from one side to the other.
The ball is placed 5 cm above the ground and must be moving in different directions inside the machine, then it’s supposed to leave the machine at the same level it enters.
There are no engines or mechanism, only kinetic and potential energy. I used copper wires to make the rails and finally I covered the bottom with carbon fiber.
It was a great joy to do this project. I learned a lot, and gained a lot of experience.
