Large unstable platform

What can you do here
Climb onto the platform with a few other people. Try to stand in such a way that the platform becomes level. All changes in the participants’ positions should be slow and coordinated.

How does it work
The centre of gravity location determines the position the platform assumes. If the centre of gravity and the centre of the platform are in the same spot, the platform is level.

Interesting facts
At times a strange-looking system is in equilibrium thanks to a well-distributed mass. That’s the case, for instance, with the ‚balancing bird’ available in our shop.
