The World's Tiniest Rube Goldberg Machine Made of Watch Parts Is a Masterpiece

Video: The infinite number of ways you can build a complicated Rube Goldberg machine makes it infinitely fascinating to watch them run. Even when they're built from tiny watch parts like this Seiko creation, and are so small they can easily squeeze onto a table, instead of filling a massive warehouse.

It's a little disappointing that occasionally there's some human intervention required to keep this Rube Goldberg contraption running. But it's understandable when some of the 1200 mechanical watch parts used are smaller than a millimetre in size. At that scale, even gravity needs a helping hand.

    The Human Element is obviously part of the mechanism, I'm sure it's part of the symbolism of it.

    Far too much human interaction there for that to be a Rube. Beautiful bit of kit how ever.
