Step 1: Additional pictures

The mechanism works as follows:
The motor is rotating constantly, driving 2 outputs.
  • The left toggle is in position 1, right toggle in position 2, output left 2 and right 2 are driven*
  • Ball 1 comes and switches left toggle.
  • Left toggle pos 2, right pos 2, output left 1 and right 2 are driven
  • Ball 2 comes and switches right toggle.
  • Left toggle pos 2, right pos 1, output left 1 and right 1 are driven
  • Ball 3 comes and switches left toggle.
  • Left toggle back to pos 1, right position 1, output left 2 and right 1 are driven
  • Ball 4 comes and switches right toggle.
  • Left toggle pos 1, right back to position 2, output left 2 and right 2 are driven (original position)
* postion 1 corresponds with output 1, position 2 with output 2.
