Anyone who has witnessed a pendulum wave in person knows just how impressive the mechanics behind such a seemingly simple creation can be. Not to mention how mesmerizing it can be in general. Yet this pendulum wave in particular is mind-boggling as it occupies a larger scale than those people are accustomed to. To put it into perspective, the pendulum wave is made up of 16 big bowling balls.

Built on private property in the mountains of North Carolina, near Burnsville, the pendulum wave relies on a sturdy wooden frame and swings "in hypnotic patterns for a cycle of about 2 minute and 40 seconds," writes This is Colossal. Nevertheless, since the pendulum wave resides outside, a number of factors prevent the balls from lining up perfectly.
