VOTW: A Smartphone Rube Goldberg Machine

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 10 comments

It's a smart Rube Goldberg machine!

A little while back everyone went nuts over Okay Go's giant Rube Goldberg machine. Constructed in a big warehouse, the machine was to go along with the band's latest song but a lot of people watching it probably never even noticed there was music playing.

The people over at Vodafone recently constructed their own Rube Goldberg machine using smartphones, printers and all the usual Rube Goldberg staples (balls, toys, balloons and little birds on skateboards). The video comes from Vodafone Italy. Check it out below.

    that will not make me buy a phone or a service, but I will have more respect for the ones having such cool idea. It me and few others looking at the specs and neglecting commercials, but I can guess the effect it can have on people that surround me every day.
