Rube Goldberg 2008: The Makers and Their Machines (Video)


Here’s a video of my visit to the 2008 National Rube Goldberg Machine Contest at Purdue University last month. It was a lot of fun to hear the participants talk about their creations and to see them running their machines. Not since the classic 1982 video game BurgerTime has the task of making a burger been so wonderfully complicated and urgent.
