Sadly we can't precisely control the movement of items in Factorio.

Wow, that machine really exists.

But you can't do this in real life:

Better forum search for modders: Enclose your search term in quotes, eg. "font_color" or "custom-input" - it prevents the forum search from splitting on hypens and underscores, resulting in much more accurate results.

Sorry, guy, this is off-topic and so moved from General to there.

If you search a bit, you will find similar stuff in the off-topic board. :)

Could you merge in this topic - it's about exact same thing: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=35120

Even the forums can do this kind of merging thing.

What kind of builds would people use this for? I think it could be a good way to sort materials without using power. Like if 2 ore reserves are next to one another, you can help keep the lines clean even if the biters seize the power plant.
Although it would be best for compressing belts. Lets' say you're moving materials into your chemical plant equipment manufacturing floor and have limited space. You can move a belt of lets' say steel. The switch conveyor will move steel to one side of a belt without having to have a 3x2 setup with a splitter.
Definitely would make some things far easier.

These concept belts are a trip
