Rube Tuesday, 11/2/10

Out of the blue, a name came to mind the other day, a name I'd not heard in years. When I was a kid, I loved the intricate diagrams created by cartoonist Rube Goldberg (1883-1970). What came to be known as "Rube Goldberg machines" completed simple tasks in elaborately complex ways.

The life and legacy of Rube Goldberg deserves closer examination. For now, here's a contemporary creation inspired by Goldberg - the Falling Water Cocktail Making Machine. Brilliant!
