Super Impressive 4-Minute Rube Goldberg Machine Flips A Whiteboard, Uses Both Sides

August 25, 2017

This is a very impressive 4-minute Rube Goldberg machine made to advertise Japanese channel 24Hour Television. It's like half marbles, half other crazy contraptions (including flipping a whiteboard and continuing the machine on the other side) and half magic. "That makes three halves." I know, I can count. "Can you though?" Not if you don't let me touch my fingers, no. "Do your parents know you're on the internet?" They'd kill me!

Keep going for the video. I particularly liked the part with the marble behind the sheet of plastic at 1:12.

    Voice over man, shut up! Even if I knew what you were saying, you'd still be annoying.

    And what is this sorcery from 1:14-1:19?
    Seriously, does anyone know?

  • GeneralDisorder

    You're talking about the glass? I think it's at an angle so the marble can only roll one direction.

    How did the three balls at :48 stick upside down to the track?

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    looks like little shelves or cups on the board to hold them in place. now what the hell was that clear super-spinner stuff at 1:12???

  • Gilbert

    If you hold a clear piece of hard plastic at an angle, it acts like a ramp, but it only affects the points of contact, aka the extreme ends of the ball, causing it to spin very fast but not moving either vertically or horizontally very fast...

    It's useful for some applications, much like the effect for using the ball chain to come flying out of the container like it did, but mostly in academia or things like this...
