How did they get the wheels/tires to roll UP that ramp? And, some other things don't look quite right. I'd like to see this on a bigger screen. Very cool Rube Goldberg device, though.
 






Thats been floating around for a while, if the tires are weighted correctly they could roll up that ramp.
 






Very kewl, everything looked perfectly plausible to me. And Doug's right, if you add a weight to the inside of a tire, balance the tire with the heavy side up, tapping the side of said tire will knock it out of balance and the weight will help the tire go faster and be able to go up a ramp.
 






Thats a few years old, and its all real. Took hundreds of takes to get it right.
 


















Thank you for posting this. I've heard so much about it before but never saw it. The whole thing is REAL, no special effects. That's why they made such a big deal about it. It took over 150 takes for them to get it just right.
 






Yes, its real... it was in the news for a while.... Honda engineers made it.... its about a year or two old... got major media attention.... etc.
 






Yup, that's an oldie but goodie.

Ebaums (where the vid is hosted) says 606 takes :eek:

Here's the Snopes article for it, for those that still don't believe:
