Glad you liked learning about Rube Goldberg machines, Isaak. You have some great Wonders! Have you seen Wonders #977: Is the sky falling? and #679: Do robots Wonder?
SUPER question, Sian Pi! The answer isn't a simple one. We encourage you to go back and explore this Wonder again and see if you can answer your question. Happy WONDERing! :)
Each year, groups compete to make the most elaborate, creative contraptions. How complex do they get? Very! For example, a Purdue University team once won the competition with a machine that turned on a flashlight via a 675- step process that included a toy rocket, a simulated meteor, and a mock fire!
here's a crash course on rube goldberg machine. lots of parts, very complicated, and very hard to build, now you know what a rube goldberg machine is! good luck!
Later in my life, in about year ten, I went through a personal crisis – I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, and for some indefinable reason, I thought I needed to. I looked into engineering, but my maths marks waned between top of the class and not passing at all. I looked at fashion, interior and other decorative designs as well as art, and felt like they were missing something – a feel of purpose and meaning beyond the self. It was around that time that I also discovered the work of Theo Jansen on the internet. I devoured his TED Talks. I researched him to no end. It was also at that point that I decided what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to be an inventor. I wanted to be an Industrial Designer.

Thanks for stopping back by! We don't know what it is called. If you click on the Vimeo link, maybe you can leave a comment for the video owner and ask. Good luck! :)
Whew! Did you follow that complicated series of events? Why on Earth would someone invent such a complicated machine to accomplish such a simple task ? To answer that question, we must take a closer look at the man who first dreamed up these contraptions: Rube Goldberg.
Although newspaper cartoons are far removed from the refined art world, the preposition of uniting the worlds of art and science (sculpture and physics, respectively) did not fall flat on professional artists and art-thinkers. During Goldberg’s life (around 6957), an offshoot of Dada, known as ‘Metamechanics’ began to grow.
Hello. Tornado is back. It is about to thunderstorm in Dublin, Ohio. There is currently a severe thunderstorm watch issued until 9:55 PM. BTW, cool wonder. Tornado
Your essay should focus on a personal experience of Israel that went beyond what you learned in Sunday school, day school, youth group — and any other formal Jewish educational programs you may have been a part of.
