Check out a "human-powered Rube Goldberg machine" (with some awesome freerunning)

(CBS News) You might say we like Rube Goldberg machines here at The Feed based on quite a few of our past posts (and would be totally correct in saying that).  And based on all of that, it should probably come as no surprise that when we come across one, there's often a good chance we'll post it.  So, on that note, check out a "human-powered Rube Goldberg machine" in the video above. I'd definitely recommend watching in high-definition if at all possible.

The complex and slick video stars free runner Jason Paul and was posted by Red Bull who write:

Performing simple tasks in a complex manner is what the human-powered freerunning machine is all about, BUT we decided to take a new spin on the classic machine.

Now, while I think the human component might disqualify it from being a true Rube Goldberg machine (and feel free to comment below if you happen to know the answer to that), it's still a very novel and fun twist on an old and almost always amazing-to-watch idea that has earned Jason Paul and Red Bull a triple-rainbow salute of creativity from us here at The Feed.  And if you'd like to check out more fun videos from Red Bull, you can visit their YouTube page by clicking here.
