This Giant Crane Builds Itself In Cool Timelapse Footage


If you’ve been losing sleep at night, unable to shift the question of how crane’s can possibly get bigger when they’re already so big, then this footage is your saviour.

Filmed in 2007 in Seattle, the timelapse footage shows a giant crane hauling up sections of itself, before a team of construction workers add the new framework in a narrow scaffold.

Once the new piece is in place, the crane hauls itself up ready for another section to be added. Magic.
