    Hi folks,
    Just so everyone's clear, this is an animation, not a real device.
    I've seen people confused in the past. Very cool, none the less.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Hi All,

    I wonder how many man hours went into that Rube Goldberg device.

    Question: Do you know who Rube Goldberg was?

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    According to the Wikipedia article, the Cog commercial was developed over seven months, at a cost of 1 million.

    Rube Goldberg was this guy:

    I remember as a kid growing up they always had a Rube Goldberg contraption in the Sunday newspaper in the color funnies.
