Mesmerizing Pendulum Balls swinging in patterns - video

We have all seen those steel balls swinging into each other as desktop ornaments, that are captivating for about 10 minutes. Here is a different version, all the balls are on different lengths of cord, and set up amazingly rhythmic patterns as they independently go about swinging. Its a wonder it hasn't been thought of before. Worth watching.

Fifteen uncoupled simple pendulums of monotonically increasing lengths dance together to produce visual traveling waves, standing waves, beating, and random motion. One might call this kinetic art and the choreography of the dance of the pendulums is stunning! Aliasing and quantum revival can also be shown.
