Mesmerizing gif shows off a Newton’s Cradle made from light bulbs

I did not know light bulbs work that way!


I am distracted by the bulbs bouncing off their neighbors, since in a real Newton’s cradle, this doesn’t happen. This kinda ruins it for me.


I’ve been looking for a project to start for a Raspberry Pi…something like this might be interesting…


In a real Newton’s cradle, there also isn’t a pause between one side hitting and the other side moving, as there is with this one.


I could watch that for hours.
