The universe's biggest gear reduction! GOOGOL to 1


Today at 14:52 I will be exactly 1 billion seconds old. To celebrate I build this machine that visualizes the number googol. That's a 1 with a hundred zeros. A number that's bigger than the atoms in the known universe. This machine has a gear reduction of 1 to 10 a hundred times. In order to get the last gear to turn once you'll need to spin the first one a googol amount around. Or better said you'll need more energy than the entire known universe has to do that. That boggles my mind. ⁣

The version in the video is a prototype and cannot run for to long BUT I'm making a version that could run for years/decades. If you are interested don't hesitate to contact me via email.
