Turn the device on it's side, the ball will bounce down the stairs and ricochet off the the top cone into the cavity....of course you must tilt the device so that the ball hits the cone at the proper angle and tip the device up when the ball lands in the cavity....

Anyone who could read it, I suppose. Is there a prize for getting it right, Mildred?

Drop the ball down the hole in top. Whichever way it rolls out, when it reaches the outside of the upper cone, apply a magnetic field. It will then stick to the upper cone until it reaches the bottom and falls off. (This assumes the cone and ball are ferromagnetic.)
