Finally finished another one ;) This lego GBC module uses a large Lego technic sprocket on it's side to and lift the balls. It is a reliable module and meets the standard, it can hold over 30 balls in the input bin and runs just over 1 ball per second. The mechanism runs a lot smoother in real life then it look in the video, it also runs a bit better slightly slower. You may notice in the video that sometimes it doesn't pick up the full 6 balls. This could be fixed by changing the agitator design or running it a bit slower so that the balls have more time to roll into the sprocket I did not change the design because it is very reliable like this and still meets the standard. RebrickableFlickr.

Nice module, with an interesting drive system. 
I recently brought two large sprocket wheels, so I have a use for them now.

Thank you! You can also flip them the other way and put 6 basketballs in the middle to make a turntable.

^^^This could make a cheeky ball bearing :D

Yes, it is very smooth. I think it might be hard to attach a motor to it though...

Great work again! I like that you always come up with unique ideas. 

Thanks! This one was accidental, I came up with it when I was trying to make a turntable out of the sprocket pieces.
