Welcome to the world of that archetypal American, Reuben Lucius Goldberg, the dean of American cartoonists for most of the twentieth century. ‘Inventions,’ even the earliest ones that date from 1914, are still being republished and recycled today as they have been over the last eighty-five years. New generations rediscover and enjoy them every day, even though their creator cleaned his pens, put the cap on his bottle of Higgins Black India Ink, and cleared his drawing board for the last time almost thirty years ago. The inventions inspired the National Rube Goldberg – Machine Contest, held annually at Purdue University, an ‘Olympics of complexity’ in which hundreds of engineering students from American universities and colleges – and even middle and high schools – compete to build and run Rube Goldberg invention machines that perform, in twenty or more steps, the annual challenge.
