The Sound of 11,000 Marbles

Posted by Adam Hopkins 4 years ago

Have you ever wondered what kind of noise over 11,000 marbles pouring through a marble run might make? For Jelle Bakker, the self proclaimed Marble Master, the wondering became a reality with this huge marble run.

The video below has racked up over 1 million views since it was posted making it one of the most viewed videos of all time.

Taking nearly 3 months to build, it has four separate paths for marbles to flow along and four tipping containers that contain between 10 and 10,000 marbles. When tipped, the largest of tippers unleashes a tsunami of marbles.

Watching the marbles flow around the marble track is hypnotic and can’t help but make you think of liquid flowing around the track.

Jelle is well known in his home country of Holland for being a bit marble crazy, but this video has just elevated his popularity no end.
