I simply cannot get enough of Rube Goldberg machines, and this one made by Pratt grad students Alex Crawford and Austin Nelson for their Multimedia Installation project is pretty damn cool. Here’s a quote from the duo:
We had both always wanted to build a Rube Goldberg machine but never had a good reason to and we could also never find anyone else interested in spending a lot of time and energy building a machine that is basically pointless. This was the perfect opportunity! We spent about 30 hours building it and the result is a process that lasts about 30 seconds. Time well spent, I believe.
