Kurtis Baute set up thousands of dominoes in order to tell the story of the universe. The more you watch this, the crazier you realize it is. Not only does he set up and topple 13,799 dominoes, he also narrates a timeline of the universe as it happens, with each domino representing a million years. The timing had to be precise, the props along the way had to work without disturbing the dominoes, and a screwup would come with a high price -that’s a lot of dominoes to reset! I believe the sparkler didn’t work right, but he didn’t stop, and they edited it nicely. Just designing this idea had to be a ton of work! But don’t get distracted by overthinking all that, or by his obvious nervousness and heavy breathing. The story Baute is telling is fascinating in itself. -via Geekologie
