Now we'll never know what the prizes were inside those foot-wide balls.

World's Largest Claw Machine

This machine is in a really cool cafe. Great local coffee and a haven for tinkerers, with many 3D prints on display. The little shop is as fun as the home-built mega-claw machine.

World's Largest Claw Machine

Inside a small downtown bar is the World's Largest Claw Machine. It is filled with huge balls, over a foot in diameter. The bar itself is really neat, too. It has 3D printers where you can design your own creation and it also has kits that you can solder together to create different electronics.

It also has a nice selection of food and beverages.

[David, 09/08/2015]

The bar refers to itself as "an experience center," and says that its claw machine has been certified by Guinness World Records as the world's largest.
