Google’s Rube Goldberg Logo Celebrates the 4th of July

Google has done it again with yet another cleverly executed logo on its home page. This time, it’s in honor of the 4th of July, 2010: a Rube Goldberg machine animation that culminates in fireworks.

Rube Goldberg was an American inventor in the early 20th century. The machines that carry his name execute long mechanical chain reactions to accomplish very simple tasks like lighting a fire cracker.

Google does humor, geek-style
