    Rube Goldberg Devices and More…

     

    It’s no secret to any of my friends that I like to hang out on Youtube quite a bit. There, I find all sorts of interesting things and one night I stumbled upon a number of videos, all about Rube Goldberg devices.

    If you’ve never heard the expression, a Rube Goldberg device is a type of machine used to accomplish a task and during the process sets off many other events as it progresses. These machines are based on the fertile imagination of American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg, who lived from 1883–1970.

    His approach has led to some wild machine ideas, some of which appear on this page. Enjoy!

    This one video isn’t a complete Rube Goldberg device, but a hybrid. Still, it’s really entertaining. Enjoy!
