A Rube Goldberg machine is a machine intentionally designed to perform a simple task in an indirect and over complicated fashion. Often, these machines consist of a series of simple devices that are linked together to produce a domino effect, in which each device triggers the next one, and the original goal is achieved only after many steps.
