It sounds like it needs wings and a stinger.

@stephenfry Have a smile - here's a Rube Goldberg machine made with toys old and new: http://vimeopro.com/dmiproductions/seasons-greetings

Rube Goldberg machine:
is a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg (1883–1970).



Rube Goldberg's cartoons became well known for depicting complex devices that performed simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways. The example below is Goldberg's "Professor Butts and the Self-Operating Napkin"

The group OK GO incorporated one into one of their videos...


Quote:The official video for the recorded version of "This Too Shall Pass" off the album "Of the Blue Colour of the Sky". The video was filmed in a two story warehouse, in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The "machine" was designed and built by the band, along with members of Syyn Labs ( http://syynlabs.com/ ) over the course of several months.

Too busy and too large to see all the connections, so they supply a link to a map so you can see parts and info of the machine
