Balancing 117 Objects on a Single LEGO Brick

I’m not sure how this guy did it, but he succeeded in balancing 117 toys on a single, 4 X 2 lego brick. The fun part came later though, when he used little wind-up creatures to knock the whole thing down.

I created this photograph for the Kids Gallery of the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford. It shows 117 objects balancing on a single Lego block. No adhesives, glue or hidden supports were used. The stability of this improbable pile of objects is helped by positioning the center of gravity of each horizontal section directly above the Lego block and by lowering the center of gravity of the entire structure as much as possible through the use of hanging objects.
