Rube Goldberg meets a Cadbury Creme Egg
The makers of Cadbury chocolates held a competition last year asking enthusiasts to submit videos of Cadbury Eggs being smashed. The video above shows a complex Rube Goldberg apparatus serving that purpose.
Last June I posted a 9-minute video depicting many of these same techniques for propelling a marble through a Rube Goldberg setup. This video seems a little more "home-made," but it's quite entertaining; the creators indicate that it took them 6 months to set up the apparatus.
