The Infinite LEGO Domino Machine

Once you knock dominoes over, you generally have to set them back up by hand. But in the case of this LEGO Technic machine by Grant Davis, the dominoes stand themselves back upright. Running in an infinite loop of 10 dominoes at a time, it can knock down and stand up dominoes at a rate of 120,000 per day.

Students and staff from New York’s Long Beach Middle School broke the Guinness World Record for the “Most Cereal Boxes Toppled in a Domino Fashion” by setting up hallway after hallway with more than 6300 boxes of breakfast cereal.

A team of domino builders in Michigan created a number of interconnected and creative displays, which culminated in the toppling of the longest wall of dominoes ever built. The 4-foot-tall, 54,321 domino wall measured more than 169 feet long and took 90 seconds to fall. The big wall comes down starting at 4:25.

Domino expert Lily Hevesh spent more than 50 days painstakingly assembling this eyecatching structure out of interlocking hexagons.

For those unfamiliar with them, Kapla planks are basically skinny wooden dominoes. You can use them for building structures and knock them, which is more than half the fun. Enjoy a variety of complex structures as they topple in this clip from the aptly-named Kaplamino.

Christmas Dominoes

Domino master Lily Hevesh rings in the holidays with a series of Christmas-themed domino displays, including a giant pixel grid of Santa Claus, presents, ornaments, sleighs, and stockings. We’re guessing she had to stock up on extra red and green dominoes for this video.

The Sound of Brick Dominoes

The Sound of Brick Dominoes

It doesn’t matter how many domino videos we watch, we always enjoy watching them topple. But if we ever have a pallet of bricks delivered, we’re so doing what the family in this video did, and use them like giant dominoes. The sound they make is so incredibly satisfying.

Robot Sets Up 100,000 Dominoes

Setting up dominoes can be time-consuming and requires a steady hand. We’ve seen robots that can stand one domino at a time. Mark Rober and his engineering pals presents DOM – a custom-built robot that can set up 300 dominoes at a time. The robot arm and Hot Wheels track loading system is equally awesome.

Self-Standing Dominoes

Self-Standing Dominoes

Normally, when you knock over dominoes, they stay down. But is it possible to create a domino that stands itself back up using the energy that toppled it? The Action Lab explores this very possibility with some unique 3D-printed dominoes. You can grab the 3D models on Thingiverse if you want to play with them for yourself.
