Ep.2 – Rohan Beckett

Greg is introduced to the wonderful world of GBC (great ball contraptions) after chatting with an Aussie GBC expert, Rohan Beckett. Greg learns how GBCs blend fun, engineering and problem-solving together, including some of the ingenious ways GBCs transport balls from point A to B. Rohan shares the joys but also the unique challenges of engaging in this niche LEGO area. Despite GBCs being one of the more popular displays at conventions, Greg hears how exhibiting GBCs can feel like wrangling 100 toddlers!
