This Japanese Rube Goldberg is UNBELIEVABLE
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.
