Gilles Charles is responsible for the The Launching Pad for marbles. He further developed this idea and took the effect to extremes by arranging the magnetic track in a semi-circle. The result is astounding and remarkable.
In the video, Mr. Charles shows the practical implementation of the idea and demonstrates the amazing effect. At the end of the video he combines both ideas (launching pad and flash ramp) - absolutely well worth seeing!
The video can be viewed at Youtube. If you have questions for Mr. Charles, please write a comment on the Youtube page.
Note: Mr. Charles would like to emphasise that he did not create a perpetual motion machine but only a magnetic accelerator.
