Computer logic using Dominos

Sometime to demonstrate how something works, you have to take the demonstration completely outside the form or foundation of the subject. An example of how this works is the simplified version of human reproduction we have all heard and joked about: The birds and the bees. Well I found something that maybe is not quite as fundamental, but is brilliant none the less in it's simplicity. The demonstrator show how computer logic circuits work using nothing but the humble domino. And, Or and a Xor gate are demonstrated, and the brilliance is, you can just look at them and say "oh, yeah, I see how that works" Its not high science but it is brilliant science!
