Actually this reminds me of the CGI Graphics productions of an American company called Animusic. About 15 years ago they released a couple of DVDs consisting of MIDI music set to CGI animations of Rube Goldberg devices.

This guy has managed to bring them to life.

But mathematically speaking, they are identical. The animations are real time physical simulations using real physics to design.

What I'm saying is that this Swede was no doubt inspired by the Animusic videos if not absolutely plagiarizing one of their designs or possibly even their CAD software to come up with this.

Animusic literally produced dozens of these animations while the Swede was still toddling around in diapers.

Here's something similar using 100 year old technology. The Wurlitzer Orchestrion.

It turns out 5 years ago a control and automation company actually built a working Animusic machine as a proof of concept.! :eek:
