Have you ever seen someone burn a hole through paper using nothing but a magnifying glass and sunlight using power of optics? The creators behind this video took that experiment a step further and made an elaborate game of mousetrap that’s powered by bending and concentrating light and showing the real.
A Rube Goldberg machine is a contraption, invention, device or apparatus that is deliberately over-engineered or overdone to perform a very simple task in a very complicated fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg (1883–1970).
