Relax and Enjoy This Rube Goldberg Machine

 |  |  February 8, 2018


I’ve always wanted to build my own Rube Goldberg machine. Sadly I lack the free time and the expertise, but maybe I could build a 2D version like this one day. Who am I kidding? This thing is way too sophisticated for me.

Check out this minute-and-a-half run of Kaplamino’s ‘Blue Marble’ 2D Rube Goldberg style machine. Another reason I won’t be attempting something like this anytime soon? It took him over 3 months complete this masterpiece, and he estimates more than 500 fails. Yeah, Rube Goldberg machines take a lot of time and work. I’ll just enjoy this one in the video.

Kaplamino always wanted to make a big chain reaction in one take with a 2D style machine and he did an amazing job here. This machine has what is called a “one marble path”. That means you have to follow the same marble for all the tricks. Because everything is in a tilted plane, the hard part was to find different ways of having the marble riding up along the table. Some of the solutions for that were magnets, a falling weight, and a catapult. I find this video super relaxing, especially since I didn’t have to build it.
