Domino Day

Saturday, November 14, 2009 was Domino Day! So, here are some interesting links on the history of Domino Day and some fun links to make your own!

I saw this on ABC News and found it on YouTube! It is taken in the Netherlands and set a new world record  using over 4 million dominoes! Wow!

Domino Day 2009

The 2009 event is entitled 'The World in Domino - The Show with the Flow'. It was the 11th edition of the show; it showed different aspects of the world with the display moving from continent to continent. The design uses 4.8 million dominoes. 4,345,028 dominoes were needed to be toppled in order to break the standing world record. Even though part of the final section of the piece did not fall, and three builder's challenges failed, the amount of dominoes toppled was 4,491,863 and the record was broken.
