Abstract

Rube's drawings depict absurdly-connected machines functioning in extremely complex and roundabout ways to produce a simple end result; because of this Rube Goldberg has become associated with any convoluted system of achieving a basic task... While most machines work to make difficult tasks simple, his inventions made simple tasks amazingly complex.
