Newton’s Cradle, if you didn’t already know, is an awesome perpetual motion toy made using a series of identical balls suspended from a frame. You might have seen them at your local psychiatrist’s office or in many offices of CEOs. Geek Group was on a mission to create the world’s largest Newton’s Cradle.
How big, exactly, was the finished product? The cradle was made with bowling balls, so that’s a pair of 20 foot cables holding the 15 pound bowling balls about three feet above the ground. About a total of 300 pounds. That’s a whole lot of ball bashing.
