Who said Rube Goldberg machines had to abide by the laws of gravity? Oh wait, isn’t that kind of the point?
Toronto-based production collective 2D House has created a new Rube Goldberg machine unlike any you have seen before. In a video titled Isaac Newton vs. Rube Goldberg, 2D House’s creation throws everything you knew about gravitation out the Newtonian window. Through the use of visual illusions, a few strategically placed magnets, and we’re guessing some crafty video editing, they create a slick chain reaction that might actually give you a brain spasm as you try to figure out which way is up.
