Today’s Movie Monday is a compilation of the top ten (as voted upon by a panel consisting of myself) Rube Goldberg machines ever created (and posted on YouTube). For those of you who don’t know, Rube Goldberg machines are “exceedingly complex devices that perform simple tasks in very indirect and convoluted ways”, and are an idea originally conceived by Rube Goldberg, a famous cartoonist. The only qualification for the list was that it had to use real objects, because a computerized Rube Goldberg machine is just plain cheating. Enjoy.
10. Tim Fort’s Kinetic Art – Though mostly a dominoes device, the sheer magnitude of this creation earned it a spot on the list.
