Rolling ball sculpture shows computing principles

From the video description:
This rolling ball sculpture, called "The Emulator" was commissioned in 2007 for SUN Microsystems. It was designed to compare traditional, single-threaded microprocessors with new multi-threaded microprocessors. This video shows only one side of the sculpture. The other side has a single chain, representing the single-threaded processor.
