Edison's Cradle

Animated gif by teeohdeedee123/reddit

For her senior thesis, art student Yasutoki Kariya turned Newton's Cradle into an "Edison's Cradle":

“Asobi” was Kariya’s bright idea. Meaning “play,” the installation is comprised of 11 computer-programmed incandescent light bulbs hung from strings. They playfully re-enact Newton’s Cradle – or more aptly, Edison’s Cradle – visualizing the transfer of kinetic energy, along with a very satisfying click-clack. Mesmerizing.
