Passover is almost upon us, and students at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have decided to tell the story of Exodus their way. No strangers to elaborate, hi-tech holiday stunts (see: Hanukkah menorah lighting), this time they built an intricate system of pulleys, levers, and dominoes that depicts the Passover narrative.

Highlights are the frogs and hail plagues, and the clever parting of the Red Sea. But my favorite part is probably the part where Pharoah gets a text demanding: “Let my people go!”

His reply? “No!” with a pyramid graphic.
