World’s largest Rube Goldberg machine lights up Christmas tree

  • Added:  8 months ago
  • To make the act of switching on the town’s Christmas tree lights even more exiting, Latvian e-commerce company Scandiweb constructed the world’s Largest Rube Goldberg for the people of Riga.

    Possibly the most elaborate way anyone has turned on some festive lights, the chain reaction consisted of 412 individual mechanical steps.

    I guess it's cool but it feels big for the sake of being big, not because they have great idea. This is just a large amalgamation of tricks in every other machine.

    ok, but not really all that artistic, just engineering... here's a wall of things, here's another wall of things, now something rolls to start the whole sequence again. Somehow with all the "whimsical" elements the piece has no real whimsy.

    You cant appreciate the design because its so sped up, biggest Rupe Goldberg machine, yet sadly the most boring to watch, because you cant see whats going on. You just hear a bunch of loud noises and some music, with a bunch of fast moving parts of some type or another, i couldn't see the design, i couldn't tell what did what or what was even happening. This presentation was horrible.
