Radical Rube Goldberg Video Clips

Photo credit: Rube Goldberg

In preparation for students building Rube Goldberg Machines, I like to show a couple clips peppered into each class to show students what Rube Goldberg machines are and what they can look like. I use both professional clips and student developed film clips. Here are some of my favorite professional clips:

This Too Shall Pass, by OK Go

Page Turner (The making of Page Turner and other Rube Goldberg Machines by Joseph Herscher)

Princess Machine, a GoldieBlox Ad. Extended version without Beastie Boys music.

Cog, a Honda Accord car Ad (shows how it was made too). How the tires rolled uphill.

3M Science. Applied to Life ad

Isaac Newton vs. Rube Goldberg (how they made this video clip)



Samsung Smart Travel ad

Wile E. Coyote & Roadrunner

Doble Fibra ad (Double Fiber)

Fresh Machine ad from Target


Additionally, try this Rube Goldberg Game called Goldberger To Go.
