What We're Watching: Human Kluge Machine

“A kluge is a workaround, a quick-and-dirty solution, a clumsy, inelegant, difficult to extend, hard to maintain yet effective and quick solution to a problem.” That’s the wiki definition of the term Kluge, and for this video stunt Red Bull has applied it on a human scale at an airfield somewhere in the desert Southwest. Worth a watch, no doubt.

Athletes featured in the video include Sean MacCormac (Skydiver), Joey Brezinski (Skateboarder), Rickie Fowler (Golfer), Danny MacAskill (Trials Biker), Ryan Sheckler (Skateboarder), Drew Bezanson (BMX Rider), Bryce Menzies (Off-Road Truck Racer), Rhys Millen (Drifter), Robbie Maddison (Freestyle Motocross Rider), Lolo Jones (Hurdler), Pat Moore (Snowboarder).

kluge and rube goldberg are totally different. And the video is supposed to resemble a rube goldberg. It is a poorly named video, though I agree it is fun nonetheless. I suppose “Red Bull Kluge” is catchier than “Red Bull Rube Goldberg”
