Not-So-Gentle Viewer: Organizing the Bookshelf (2011)

I can't even begin to imagine how long it took to make this, but it's freaking cool.  I also love that it lists the books that were used at the end.

Amazing! Thanks for sharing.

Uh, there's a clock to the right, I think you can figure out how long it takes.

I think the clock is as much a prop as the bookcase. That is, they took out the battery and just moved the minute hand a degree or so every time they moved the books. It'll give you a good idea of how long it would take for the books to do this themselves, if they were capable of these acrobatics, but not how long it would take people to manipulate the books. Especially if the people took coffee breaks and such. ;-)

We watched it and thought maybe 11 hours but at one point at the beginning it looked they started the clock over again. When your Dad first saw this he wanted to know what you were doing with your books.

Hmm... 11 hours sounds about right, considering how long it took me to unpack four boxes of books when I first moved into my apartment.

And I WISH I had done this to my bookshelves!

...although it seems like Sony is being a stick-in-the-mud and won't let the video play externally.
