Little bit of history
Samuel Langweiler started working on his idea of a musical marble run in 1969, which would allow a marble to create a melody by striking chimes while running down the tracks. He wanted the marble run to be interactive and the chimes to be interchangeable so children could not only build marble runs but also create different tunes by changing the order of the chimes and the lengths of the tracks in between.
During the design process, Samuel encountered quite a few problems, but after many experiments, he came up with his first melody and design. Unfortunately, due to his busy job as a cellist for the Tonhalle Orchester Zürich and being on tour for long periods at a time, Samuel did not have time to search for a manufacturer for his marble run. Only years later, the Weizenkorn Foundation started manufacturing and distributing Samuel’s invention under the name Xyloba Musical Marble Runs.
