Hot! LEGO GOOGOL:1 ratio gearing

I just saw this and it’s absolutely amazing.

This guy creates, out of 100% Legos, a device that will rotate once every time the initial motor does a googol of turns. A googol is a 1 with 100 zeroes after it (that’s a whole lot of commas too) That’s a really, really, big number. It’s all done using the magic of gearing and it’s really quite mathematically precise.

That’s pretty amazing how fine-tuned this is. 5 years is a long time to wait for a full rotation of the figure.

This project reminds me of a much bigger project funded by Jeff Bezos. A clock that is supposed to run for 10,000 years.

You missed it. It’s MUCH longer than 5 years.
