Which of These Bizarre Contraptions Broke a World Record?
A Rube Goldberg machine is an intricate device that accomplishes a simple task through a complex series of chain reactions. Over the years, a number of very creative and original Rube Goldberg machines have been created, many of which tread the fine line between science and art. One of the following videos contains the Rube Goldberg machine that broke a world record. Which do you think it is?
1. Purina created an RB machine with the help of some four-legged friends. Outstanding.
2. A group of engineering undergrads from Purdue University used nearly 250 successive chain reactions to tell the story of life on Earth.
3. Alternative rock band Ok Go synced the motions of a Rube Goldberg machine to their song "This Too Shall Pass." It took nearly 60 takes to get the timing right.
So? Which do you think it is?
Was it Purina and their extremely talented canines...
Ok Go, with a large scale device that seemed to come to life and dance to the music playing...
0r was it Purdue University, with the most technical history lesson of the world as we know it?
