The Incredible Machine (flash video)

Recommended Posts

Anyone remembr the computer games called "The Incredible Machine"? The sequel, "The Even More Incredible Machine," was one of the first PC games I played, and is still a favorite. Well, this is the first time I ever saw a real-life version of them.

The individual shorts in this video were on TV every thursday in Japan.

EDIT: The announcer is saying pitagora souichi (Pathagorean Switch), which is the name of the show.

Very cool. Machines and contraptions like these are known as Rube Goldberg Machines, so named after a man who would draw fanciful, complex devices to do a very simple task in a convoluted way. Different countries have different names for it, and as Haruko pointed out, they are known as Pathagorean Switches in Japan.
