THIS IS SO COOL...

Bro In-Law Jamie sent this to me...
*Here's the story behind 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 machines components came from John Deere
Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa , yes farm
equipment! It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up,
alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video but as
you can see it was WELL worth the effort. It is now on display in the
Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is already slated
to be donated to the Smithsonian.
*It's been around for awhile, but 1st time I've seen it...
It's making the rounds again.. Cool to see for the 1st time
or even another.. IT ROCKS!!!
*See it in ACTION 'FANTASTIC MACHINE'...
