Must see: 10,000 falling dominoes arranged to function as a basic computer

Domino falling videos are commonplace on YouTube with plenty of really impressive setups to check out. But I’d be willing to be that you’ve never seen a domino setup that doubles as a computer that’s capable of adding solving math problems.

The clip is a bit lengthy at more than 22 minutes long but it’s certainly worth the watch. As you’ll see, Matt Parker uses more than 10,000 dominoes to create a circuit that can take any two four-digit binary numbers and return the five-digit binary sum.

Everything doesn’t go exactly according to plan but it’s impressive nevertheless.
