That’s right, the winners of this year’s Rube Goldberg award created a machine that destroyed the world as we know it, just to water a plant. Every year, Geeks and Techies gather to compete in the Rube Goldberg awards, where the winner accomplishes a task using the most steps possible. (They must be applying for a government job). Many people are familiar with the contraptions built in old cartoons to accomplish menial tasks in complex ways, but were not aware that those contraptions are Rube Goldberg machines. This year Purdue broke a Guinness World Record with their contraption. Check out the story and see the video of this amazing machine.
