Dominoes, the art of toppling

I think everyone has saw videos of dominoes before. It is really interesting to see the toppling of domino pieces.
Let’s first talk about the brief history of dominoes. It is said that the dominoes came from a casino game in ancient China. The card was made of bones. After spread to Italy, some people started to stand the pieces and that is the origin of modern dominoes.
We are not going to talk about the card game of dominoes, but the domino toppling. And the word domino effect came from this activity.
First of all, let’s have a look at one of them.
I should say it is not only a way of entertainment, but also the work of art. That is the work with great concentration and persistence. Most of the work would take days to build up. Another interesting thing is people are playing human mattress dominoes as well. The new record with the most people involved is the one in Shanghai, China with 1001 people.
Here is the video.
I hope you enjoy it and if you are interested in the dominoes, you can try to build your own work.
