Default What is this thing called???

Usually if you go to a Science museum you will find an exhibit that showcases gravity and momentum. Using ball bearings or marbles that run down a track and go through different routes. Some routes activate different things (lights that turn on, pendulems that start swinging, different triggers depending on the route the ball takes) and the whole contraption is an engineer's delight.

They remind me of the game Mousetrap.

I can't figure out what the actual name of this device is......

The funtraption!

At least that's what it should be called. Or, like, the "all-men-are easily-amused" proof.
