OK Go's Rube Goldberg machine

Found on

A while ago the band OK Go made a music video for their song This Too Shall Pass which featured a giant Rube Goldberg machine in tune with the music. It took an hour to reset and a month and a half to build.

A Rube Goldberg machine gets something done in a complex way with many steps, often only accomplishing something simple. It's named after the cartoonist who drew such silly mechanisms and described how they (should) work.
