Rube Goldberg would have liked 451...

I found this fun video from the band O.K. Go that uses a super elaborate Rube Goldberg machine in their song "This Too Shall Pass."  Rube Goldberg was an engineer and artist that created machines to do mundane tasks.  You have seen his cartoon ideas everywhere including homage pieces like those found in Bugs Bunny cartoons and Wallace and Grommit.  He did them as a response to the encroachment of technology into our everyday lives.  Here's the video, its super fun, the link to the making of the video and a great article about it is at the end.

OK GO Rube Goldsberg machine and article!
