Watch The 720-Ton Ball Damper Swinging At The Top Of The Taipei 101 Skyscraper During A Typhoon

August 12, 2015


This is a video of the 720-ton steel ball damper swinging inside the Taipei 101 during a recent typhoon. The damper, which is suspended in a chamber between the 87th and 92nd floors, swung more then three-feet during the typhoon in order to counteract the swaying of the building. It's weird to think there's a 720-ton ball hanging almost at the top of one of the world's tallest buildings. It's also to weird to think there are two 7-pound balls hanging from the lower middle of one of the world's stupidest bloggers, yet here they are, bruising my thighs whenever I take the stairs.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Christina, who agrees if the house is a rockin' don't bother knockin' just kick down the door and start partying because nobody is going to hear you if you just knock.
