they make frequent cuts in the video, but it's still very impressive. innovative too. not the basic rube goldberg you always see.

it takes forever (30 minutes) and at the end nothing happens. just warning you so you're not expecting closure.

hehe well, still pretty impressive. he uses a lot of chemical reactions to set off a lot of them. definitely different.

haha love that honda version. saw it a long time ago. nice how they only used the cars' parts.


man, where do you come up with ideas for these? must have a lot of time on their hands. always worth the look though :)

They probably all got the idea from The Incredible Machines for the computer back in the early 90's, I guess they had a version in 2000 and 2001. Its a awesome game to play and I'd wish they would update it badly for the computer or the new systems that are out there.

Heres better information about it.

They didn't go that far, so imagine if a large weight was place inside the tire at the very top (perfectly balanced). When it's bumped, the heavy part of the tire will go down, but the tire will appear to go up.
