Pitagora Suitchi (Pythagora Switch) – Marble chain reaction

Watch more with these video collections:

After watching NYT’s Brooklyn’s Rube Goldberg video, we went googling for Japanese versions and happened upon a bunch short films for the educational TV show, Pitagora Suitchi (Pythagora Switch). 

Update! The original video was taken down (as Pythagora Switch videos often are), so we’ve replaced it with this adorable and super-impressive homemade Pitagora-style marble chain reaction from 2006.

Watch more Pitagora Suitchi and Rube Goldberg machines.
