This isn't technically Twilight related, but as OkGO! Was on the New Moon Soundtrack, and due to the fact that they just generally rock, I figured they deserved a post here. If nothing else, this will brighten your day by watching a really inventive Rube Goldberg device put to song.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.
This is actually the 2nd video to this song, but this one is much better. Here is the 1st one if you were super interested. Watch this one in full screen if you can and read Wired.com's review of this and how they pulled it off after the video
Now technically they took over 60 takes practicing this, and working on the perfection. But the video you see above is not pieced together, it's just one steady shot which is just super cool
You gotta go to Wired to read how they did thisSadowsky estimates that 55 to 60 people worked on the project in all. That includes eight “core builders” who did the bulk of the design and building, along with another 12 or so builders who helped part-time. In addition, Syyn Labs recruited 30 or more people to help reset the machine after each run.
