World Record Rube Goldberg Machine


(YouTube link)

Purdue University's Society of Professional Engineers broke its own world record Saturday by demonstrating a Rube Goldberg contraption with 300 steps. Not only that, they made it relatively compact, as these things go, by creating rotating courses that fold out on cue. All that just to blow up and pop a balloon! Link -via The Daily What Geek

Meh. When your Rube Goldberg contraption is impossible to follow, it loses its appeal. Show me one where each step is easy to see and follow.

Too bad the video couldn't make it a little clearer - it was really hard to follow, but congrats to the Boilermakers of Purdue (I am a fan of all things Purdue to start with - their solar car team has done really well this year too).
