My fascination with all things domino, has been rekindled, thanks to our recent, maiden attempt to unravel at one-go, a mesh of 13,000 popsicle sticks!

Reuben Garrett Lucius Goldberg was a prolific editorial cartoonist who drew amongst many things, schematics of comical inventions that accomplished something simple through complex means. Convoluted? For sure, but riveting nonetheless.
Have a look at some of these Rube Golberg machines and let us know what you think!
