Mind-blowing Engineering

This video is not aviation related but worth watching I hope every one would like it.


This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between The Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa . Amazingly, 97% of the machine's components came from John Deere Industries who make tractors, and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa, manufacturers of farm equipment. For sceptics who think this is computer animation, It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video. The machine is now on display in Iowa in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.
