Rube Goldberg Machine World Record
This is a new Guiness World Record for the largest Rube Goldberg Machine. A Team from PSPE (Purdue Society of Professional Engineers) broke its own world record with a 300-step machine.
“The Purdue machine, built by a team from the Society of Professional Engineers and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, had 300 steps. The team spent more than 5,000 hours constructing the machine that accomplished every task ever assigned in the competition’s 25-year history, including peeling an apple, juicing an orange, toasting bread, making a hamburger, changing a light bulb, loading a CD and sharpening a pencil.”
