11,000 Marbles Running Through A Maze Is Oddly Soothing [Video]

Well, it’s soothing if you turn the volume way down.

This “Marble Tsunami” was created by Jelle Bakker. It’s 33-feet long and has has four tipping containers holding more than 11,000 marbles. Bakker is aware that the sound is deafening and plans to equip it with a noise damping housing and glass panels on the front.

It reminded me of the roar of the ocean. I can see where this would be really soothing as white noise if the roar of the marbles could be lessened. It’s definitely hypnotic to watch.

See the video after the break.
