Wow! that's so cool. At first I was thinking "this looks boring the ball is just going to roll to the end there and get stuck" then I laughed so hard when i saw what heppened :P

It's a lot easier to get a stick to balance like that than a ball

I think Rusu's is more impressive because it's on the tip of a rectangular object instead of on a circle

i think neither are impressive, but both are cool. the only balancing act that impresses me would definitely be the mission to mars solution.
i just dont get how that works. if we dont lose momentum on flat surfaces, than it would be impossible to remove all momentum while making it to the balancing point. because if it runs out of momentum on the hill, than it should roll back down. if it has momentum, than makes it to the tip, the only flat pixel, than it shouldnt lose any more momentum while on that point. theres no air resistance in this game, so ???????
because im pretty sure that a ball will roll forever on the flat.

Maybe the calculation of the decrease in momentum of a ball rolling up hill is made after it goes up each pixel. So, the ball has a wee bit of momentum, then when it goes up the last pixel onto the flat tip, the momentum is decreased to 0, so it stays there

Apparently FC likes to have sleeping dynamics :P
[note: here, the word dynamics applies to ALL mobile objects, not just the yellow and orange level pieces :P]

Same level this happened http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11110041 it balanced on the big circle though, so not that impressive....
