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
