Cuusoo of the Week : Ball Maze (Labyrinth)

In this section we help promote LEGO Cuusoo idea’s to help them reach the 10,000 likes needed for their idea to get created! This week we feature the idea called “Ball Maze (Labyrinth)” created by Touthomme. Here’s what the creator had to say about the idea:

“This is a fully functioning version of a ball maze game, also commonly known as a Labyrinth. It features interchangeable mazes, a built in removable ball container and a travel lock.

Since it is built out of LEGO, you can customize the maze as you see fit, build additional mazes, and make them as simple or challenging as you want. In addition to the maze shown in the main photo I have also designed two themed mazes. Below is a micro space themed maze.

And here is a medieval themed maze, complete with fire breathing dragon.

The mechanics of the maze are actually quite simple, using a set of technic axles and liftarms to control the tilt of the maze.

All the mazes I have shown here have depressions that the ball can get stuck in, but this is not a requirement. You could design a more traditional maze without the depressions, which would be much easier, but still be fun to move the ball through, and would be well suited for smaller children.”

Watch a video of this project in action on Youtube! Enjoy! :)
