Here they are, more than 100 of the inventions that made Rube Goldberg’s name an adjective describing any overly complicated invention, machine, or scheme laboriously contrived to perform a seemingly simple operation. Along the way, Rube Goldberg: Inventions also introduces students to the man – a sportswriter turned cartoonist whose work was syndicated worldwide for 65 years and inspired the Olympics of Complexity at Purdue University. See what can happen when technology meets daily life and laugh all over again.
