Rube Goldberg

Rube Goldberg designs are interesting and often crazy ways to make something happen...  A task as simple as pouring a cup of coffee could involve bowling balls and fire with a Rube Goldberg machine.

For example, this is a drawing of a "Simple Pencil Sharpener" that I got from the site mentioned below.  The steps are defined in more detail on the site.

Check out the Rube Goldberg site!  Be sure to click around to see what the site shows.

Here are some fun videos that show some modern takes on Rube Goldberg designs.
