You’ve seen complex machines, you’ve seen silly complex machines, you’ve seen Rube Goldbergs, but you’ve never seen something as glorious and intricate as this. For those of you who don’t know, a Rube Goldberg, named after cartoonist Rube Goldberg, is a machine made up of seemingly infinite moving parts meant to complete one incredibly simple task. For example, a boot kicking a cat who scratches the string that releases the anvil which hits a button to turn on your TV. That kind of things. People have been making them in real life for a bit, but this one is so intricate, so impressive, and takes up the entire room that it absolutely has to be seen to be believed.
This Rube Goldberg — taking place in Japan — spans the entirety of the room. We see marbles take on incredible feats we never knew marbles could take on — from traveling in between tight panes of glass to doing incredible somersaults on magnets and around the sides of small wooden planks. In the end, this three and a half minute long Rube Goldberg ends up collapsing a small wall revealing their logo. Fantastic.
