To perform a simple task in an extremely complicated manner. This is the basis of a Rube Goldberg machine – the cartoonist inventor whose legacy continues to inspire and entertain in animations and videos.

Kinetic energy, but also geometry, choice of materials and ingenious imagination are the ingredients to get to work.
