Purdue Sets World Record with Largest Rube Goldberg Machine

Hats off to the Purdue Society of Professional Engineers team. This weekend, the team broke its own world record for the Largest Functional Rube Goldberg Machine. The contraption only took 300 steps to do something quite simple — blow up and pop a balloon. If you’re a fan of Rube Goldberg machines and books, then you won’t want to miss one of my favorites — The Page Turner created by Joseph Herscher, a New Zealand kinetic artist who now resides in Brooklyn. via i09
