Making a GOOGOL:1 Reduction with Lego Gears

  • Am Vor year

    Building a long gear train using 186 Lego gears. Many different types of Lego gears are used. Enjoy!

    Inspired by Daniel de Bruin's "universe's biggest gear reduction":
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFslB...

    The finished gear ratio:
    10341796308487334800992832804222885104773611498499997696000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000:1
    or 1.0342e100:1
    or 1.034 GOOGOL:1

    Rotation time for the last gear:
    52433879932503535381614991275498187972589101825233846406570841889117043121149897330595482546 years
    or 5.2434e91 years

    Formula for the gear ratio:
    24/8 * 40/8 * 40/8 * 40/8 * 60/1 * 12/1 * 168/1 * (140 / 8 + 1) * 141 * 20/12 * (40/8)^20 * 20/12 * (24/1)^20 * 56/16 * (36/1)^10 * (40/1)^18 * 15/9 * 56/1

    List of gears used:
    27x Gear 8 Tooth [3647]
    1x Gear Expert Builder 9 Tooth [g9]
    6x Gear 12 Tooth Bevel [6589]
    2x Gear 12 Tooth Double Bevel [32270]
    1x Gear Expert Builder 15 Tooth [g15]
    1x Gear 16 Tooth [94925]
    2x Gear 20 Tooth Bevel [32198]
    23x Gear 24 Tooth [3648]
    10x Gear 36 Tooth Double Bevel [32498]
    49x Gear 40 Tooth [3649]
    2x Turntable Large Type 2 [48452cx1]
    1x Turntable Large Type 3 [18939 / 18938]
    8x Gear Rack 11 x 11 Curved [24121]
    1x Gear, Hailfire Droid Wheel [x784]
    1x Gear Worm Screw, Short [27938]
    51x Gear Worm Screw, Long [4716]

    For those wondering, the visual effect I used in the end montage is called Find Edges, comes with Adobe Premiere 14.

I don't think there's any material we know of that this device could be made of that would survive in the earth's environment long enough to see one rotation. Maybe not even the earth itself would survive that long. Right?

Very disappointed with this. The batteries will be fully discharged before the final gear turns & plastic is not suitable material for the gears because the teeth will wear out should this Lego master come up with power supply that can last an eon. My whole day has been ruined

Such a large gear ratio on Lego doesn't make sense. Already the tenth wheel will play more than turn. (Такое большое передаточное число на Лего не имеет смысла. Уже десятое колесо будет люфтить сильнее, чем поворачиваться.)

It would be a more interesting challenge to build a machine that instead of taking eons for a full turn, it would take, let's say... one hundred years. You could even take a picture everyday and see the progress over the days, months, years, in fast motion. This machine you have built is not practical due to the forces and torques involved but you can't really see if it works or not. A one hundred years machine is more feasible and you can check if it is working or not.

i wonder if you eventually get into quantum effects on the final gear, like it probably doesnt just move imperceptibly, its probably stuttering forward subatomically on some periodic basis

People are saying that you should try plugging the engine in the last gear and watch the first spin out of control, but actually it wouldn’t work because the torque needed to move it from the last gear is too great With that gear ratio I don’t think man lind has anything powerful enough to move it
