Rube Goldberg round-up

I swear to God, I'm going to get at least one comment before I've finished this thing (3 and a half hours remaining, probably imaginary readership).

Everybody loves deliberately over-elaborate machinery created to execute a very simple function in the most convuluted way possible, right? Lets hope so, because here are two videos involving Rube Goldberg machines.

First, some clips apparently culled from a Japanese television show. They've got everything: neurotically complex workings, inspired use of household objects, ingenuity to spare, and even a horribly catchy jingle. Neat!

And secondly, a computer-animated short film featuring cute robots, surprising sadness, noise words and plenty Rube Goldberg devices.
