The World's Most Complex Rube Goldberg Machine

(YouTube link)

Purdue University holds an annual Rube Goldberg Machine Contest for students from colleges all over. A world record was set this year, as the Purdue Society of Professional Engineers and Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers team of 17 students built a contraption that took 244 steps to water a flower. That beat the existing world record of 230 steps. Read all about it at Popular Mechanics. Link -via Boing Boing

Terrible video. The whole point of a Rube Goldberg machine is to be able to follow the series of events. You can't do that here. This could have easily been a spliced-together video of random events. Many transitions made no sense whatsoever.

Horrible job of documentation.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
