Invisible Goldberg

In the end, there’s few things as satisfying to watch as a video of a Goldberg machine, that gloriously grand but totally useless type of contraption named after cartoonist Rube Goldberg, who delighted audiences with his zany inventions when comics were still young.

Scientist Masahiko Sato takes things one step further, by creating an invisible, albeit basic, Goldberg machine, using glass, oil and light refraction. There’s probably a bona fide scientific explanation for all this (after all, the video runs on the page of the Japanese National Institute for Materials Science), but in my book, it’s amazingly cool first and foremost.
