LEGO Rube Goldberg Machine

Wikipedia defines a Rube Goldberg Machine as “a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg.”

Here is the LEGO version by talapz, the creator of the amazing LEGO Pop-up Kinkaku-ji (which ranks as one of my favourite LEGO videos of all time). 

Amazing how many takes it took to capture this short rube goldberg video… 187 (!!!)

Ok, I can’t resist posting this video as well…

Once again, Japanese AFOLs rock… I know, the vids have been out for a while but they are still amazing even with a second viewing. 😛
