I've seen these pendulums in a number of museums. I've always wondered who has the job to stand up each of the little posts which are knocked down every day.
Well, there's this Youtube video taken at my earlier pendulum shot at the Griffith Planetarium.The action comes at the very end, when he pushes a little switch that resets the pegs. Yawn.
How disappointing is that! It did look like it took some skill though.
