Binary marble adding machine

I don’t normally post things like this, but it is just too cool to not post…

An article on Boing Boing linked to an article on MAKE that linked to an adding machine made of wood and marbles by a guy called Matthias Wandel:

Once I started looking at the other things he had made I realised that I had been there before for his other marble machines, his home made pipe organ, the camera made from a flatbed scanner, and his CD changing machine.

The closest I have ever come to anything like these is making a primitive marble machine out of old shoeboxes and carboard tubes split lengthwise. But that was many many years ago.
