Nanodots sculpture weighs 600 pounds!

I have played with Nanodots before and the little magnetic BB's are really cool. I tried to build all sorts of things, but my construction chops aren’t that great so my stuff tended to break. Nanodots put a couple geeks to the task of breaking a world record using Nanodots and they succeeded.

The duo built the Guinness World Record certified magnetic sculpture using 550,000 gold nanodots. The sculpture was of the Golden Globes awards statue and it weighed in at about 600 pounds. The previous record holder had only 32,786 magnetic dots in it.

I wonder how the thing stayed standing up. It must be almost completely solid inside. I had a problem with my sculptures collapsing after they got to a heavy point.
