R is for Rube Goldberg

For the uninitiated, a Rube Goldberg machine is a device that is designed to do something relatively simple in a very (very) complicated way.

One of the best Rube Goldberg machines I have ever seen is featured in this OK Go video. (OK Go is renowned for making really challenging and interesting videos. If you haven’t seen them, I highly recommend it.)

 

You can get more information OK Go’s collaboration with Synn Labs in the making of this machine and the video here. And you can get more information on more Rube Goldberg machines here.

    An entertaining music video. I didn’t know that it was called a Rube Goldberg machine, though I’ve seen the device used in many movies and TV shows. Good luck with the rest of the AtoZchallenge.
