Rube Goldberg (1883-1970) was an American cartoonist, filmmaker, engineer and inventor who introduced the eponymous notion of contraptions, often made from found objects, that do simple things in an overly complicated manner, such as is seen in the opening sequence of Back to the Future or the credits on TV show Elementary.
