Red Bull Kluge – The Athlete Machine

In a YouTube video that has already received over 11 million views, Red Bull introduced their Kluge Athlete Machine, mixing several professional athletes with a Rube Goldberg machine. The video description reads:

“Derived from the German adjective Klug (meaning “clever”), Red Bull Kluge combines complex machinery patched together with the energy and prowess of world-class athletes, to see what happens when physics gets physical.”

In high school we made a Rube Goldberg machine but no one jumped out of a helicopter to activate it so I guess it’s not the same…
