Rolling marble trick

This may not appear work related, but I think it is. Just think about all those situations where things have to be moved from one place to another. I'm not old enough to remember the whizzy money transfer thingy that was in Foyles bookstore, the last of a commonly seen contraption apparently. Anyway, MSN has been featuring the YouTube video of Joseph Herscher's 'Creme that Egg' contraption. This video, however, is an interview with the inventor himself, plus a reshowing of the Heath Robinson machine in action. Although Cadbury's has recently agreed a £20m sponsorship deal for the 2012 London Olympics, I doubt this sport will be represented somehow. Shame!
