Today I attended the annual National Rube Goldberg Machine Contest finals at Purdue University. This year the task was to make a hamburger in no less than 20 steps, and the Purdue Armory was full of great, laboriously contrived burger-making machines.

I had the opportunity to interview quite a few of the participants, so look forward to a video piece on these makers (from both the high school and college competitions) and their machines in action once we get that edited together. For more pictures, you can check out my flickr set of the event.
