    If I recall correctly Golbez, didnt you try to kill Rosa with such a Ball-on-a-String? Went right through that chair....

    Pause the video and go 60 seconds further and you see the patterns repeat.

    I don`t even like math but I would love to see the equation that determines how these balls move. It would be a thing of beauty!

    @obhwfgirl
    F = ma(c) = mv^2/r
    Centripital force. In this case, since they`re all the same mass, the shorter string means a shorter swing time.
    Physics is beautiful :P

    Cool way to take advantage of a relatively simple physical equation! The time it takes for each pendulum to complete a swing is directly related to the length of the string, i.e. the balls at the long end take a little longer to swing than each one before it.

    as someone who studies vibration and control at university, iv seen lots of this sort of thing before and it can create such awesome stuff :D has anyone else seen the dancing pendulum one? i think thats my favourite, its got a man in the shape of a cross on the end of a long string and it bounces up and down and then twists round and round and then stops and then repeats the whole cycle.
    i loves it
