Rube Goldberg Machines

i made one of these when i was in grade 7.
it was a huge contraption that could make pancakes from scratch...it involved bicycles, trough's, ropes, blenders, etc.

anyway.

got me looking for examples of other such devices on line.

I found some intersting Japanese examples...although they don't actually create any final product, they are neat and quite innovative at times.

our high school physics teacher gave us extra credit projects every quarter -- one was to make a rube goldberg machine and it had to do something worthwhile at the end. mine made a bowl of shredded wheat. it was awesome.

those vids are from a japanese tv show called PythagoraSwitch. so soothing.

There was a Daily Planet segment on these the other day, there was some competition for these things and the winning team built a machine that did something like 250 steps before completing.
