World’s Newest Largest Rube Goldberg Machine [Video]

Because you can never become mesmerized enough by Rube Goldberg machines, the Purdue Society of Professional Engineers set out to top their own record for world’s largest functional Rube Goldberg machine. They succeeded, spending over 5,000 hours constructing a machine that is compact rather than the traditionally long contraptions, yet acts more like a transformer with all of its moving tracks. The machine consists of 300 steps, with the goal of blowing up and popping a balloon, but that’s not all, as the the machine amazingly completes every single task assigned in the Rube Goldberg competition’s quarter of a century history.┬áBasically, this Rube Goldberg machine is ridiculous.
