oh, hell, ya! these things kick ass like poo! i LOVE the opening song at the very beggining, dratin awesome!!!! ya! if i ever learn the words, some of which i do know, i am going to sing along to it every hour! the badunka dunka doink doink got a little annoying after a time, and so did that damn song that ended at 12:00 i watch the opening tune every time i watch it. the little sword fight in the middle is kinda like the best scene in the song,if u pause just before the dude in the orange hair(is that dyed?) strikes the final blow of that scene, u can see his expression: holy freak! he isN NOT kidding around! showers of sparks!!!!!!!! yeah buddy! the song kicks ass like hell!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love it!!!!!!!!!

jnmgibbs the cup ball thing did that because of the angle of the books it was riding on. Its very possible but also very hard to get it at exactly the right tilted angle.

couple things to say here, first what the hell is the anime at the start about, and the dance in the middle was gay. Phrase at end of all the ones was annoying and i wish i knew what it meant. these people must have lots of time on their hands. pretty good though

Jeeze, someone has anger issues. There is a huge difference between Japanese and Chinese, so I can understand why they said that. You need to chill out.

Oh, and for anyone wondering, that was a spoof episode of an anime that is subtitled by a certain group (since the anime hasn`t appeared in America yet). They released this as a spoof during a week that the anime didn`t release an episode.

And yeah, those things ruled.

The litle jingle at the end is just the japanese equivalent of "Rube Goldberg Machine"."Pitagora Souchi" It directly translates as Pythagorean Machine. :)

I couldn`t really see this running anywhere except places like Japan... shame really because i`d like to see it on English TV...

This is part of a japanese children`s tv show, they have one of these at the end of each show, this is simply a collection of them. The thing in the middle could be considered to the "wiggles" or "barney" or "teletubbies". They sing a cute song and encourage kids to stretch and exercise, in the one we saw they were talking about a train....but then again I`ve only taken 4 years of japanese.

Rasputen`s correct - this is from the kid`s section of NHK, the big Japanese TV network. It`s a quick segment that they usually put on between shows, and the oddly dancing guys were a different segment - one which my host family`s kid absolutely adored. I loved watching these things when I was in Okayama; it`s amazing that they can come up with one or two new ones a week.

the honda one looke faked at parts, like when the honda`s tires went UP and still managed to push eachother . and another thing, the definition of a rube goldberg machine is: taking many dificult steps to create a common goal. what were they accomplishing? making their logo go up and making badunka dunka doink doink?

Most definitely the best link I`ve seen on here. Rube Goldberg machines are awesome. and yes, I`m tempted to make one myself! There was one machine that didn`t look realistic. Where the ball skates about inside the cup. there`s no path for it to use! How the hell did it snake like that and still get to where it was supposed to go?!

I agree, the machine about 4:0 in is one of the best. I think I need to go design me one of these babies!

Really cool. I agree with B-Hazard, the one at ~4:00 was really cool. What was with the song and dance number half way through? And what did the little song at the end of each machine say? So many questions, so many overcomplicated and unnecessary machines
