This is at least as beautiful as the ‘Pythagora Switch’ collection.


That guy. Is. So. Excited.


A lot of these “Rube Goldberg” devices these days seem to be marble mazes. I kind of miss the wackiness and diversity of items Goldberg would include in his drawings.


Not sure what impressed me more, the flipping whiteboard or the sticky pad.


I don’t know why I love these things so much.

Yeah, not enough of these include homesick penguins, cigar smokers, or annoyed landladies!


Is the sticky pad bit the point where the marbles spin really fast but track diagonally down to the left? I can’t quite work out what’s happening there.


That was awesome… except the Big Reveal at the end… “24 Hour Television since 1978”… yawn
