Best Rube Goldberg Ever

Postby Coppermine » Fri Mar 02, 2007 7:38 pm

I had to do a Rube Goldberg project for physics class my senior year of high school. We had to make a balloon pop after 30 seconds and make light up a light at 60 seconds. You also had to include a chemical reaction. The closest you got to each time, the better your grade. I got 100%.

But, mine was absolutely nothing compared to this. I was asking myself if this was real, but I find it hard to believe anyone would go through this much trouble just to fake it.

That...was pretty effin' sweet. ;-D

I liked the ziplining dude to the air hockey table and the dart thing the most. Still, to get the angles that they did for some of those golf balls and stuff is crazy. I wonder how long it took them to make all of that (and how many takes, haha).

Mythbusters did one of those one time...took them quite a few tries to get it right.

The bow and arrow with the dart board was way cool. :-D
