:eek: That is soooo cool. The bit of my brain that loves the ingenuity of magic is the exact same bit that loves these incredible machines. I would love to see Lubor Fiedler, Gaetan Bloom or Angelo Carbone construct one of these machines with the use of magic principles. The mind boggles! Thanks alot for sharing this Harold! :eek:
As near as I can tell from google, etc., the Rube Goldberg machines are "bumpers" (transition segues) between segments of a children's show in Japan. See HERE to get more of the flavor of the whole show.
