Imagine crossing dominoes with spring-loaded popsicles – you get this 1,000 piece “stick bomb” winding through a house … I can’t wait to try this at home with the kids. A shout out to Paul for forwarding this to me!

-Aragon

Wikipedia says:

A stick bomb is a mechanical spring-loaded device constructed out of flat sticks woven together under tension. Other names for stick bombs include Chinese stick puzzles, and frame bombs.

Simple stick bombs made out of four, five, or six sticks have been known to schoolchildren for ages. They were often known as ‘Chinese stick puzzles’ which indicates a possible origin for the devices. In the early 2000s, new methods for creating stick bombs of limitless size were developed.
