Rube Goldberg machines (named after the American cartoonist and inventor) are deliberately over-engineered to perform simple tasks in a complex manner. Red Bull put an awe-inspiring spin on the machine with a mega-sized, human-powered version. German free runner Jason Paul and his Team Farang took it to the next level in and around an abandoned factory in Hamburg. He performed various stunts to set off the chain reactions, including leaping off of upright shipping containers that fall like dominoes, and jumping out of a moving convertible. You can check it out in the video below:
