How they did it

How OK Go’s Amazing Rube Goldberg Machine Was Built:

For nearly four minutes — captured in a single, unbroken camera shot — the machine rolls metal balls down tracks, swings sledgehammers, pours water, unfurls flags and drops a flock of umbrellas from the second story, all perfectly synchronized with the song. A few gasp-inducing, grin-producing moments when the machine’s action lines up so perfectly, you can only shake your head in admiration at the creativity and precision of the builders.

Thanks to my pal Bob for passing along this article about the new OK Go video I posted the other day.
