300 Step Rube Goldberg Machine Sets New World Record

A team of engineering students at Purdue University have built a Rube Goldberg-style machine that inflates and pops a balloon in 300 steps—a new world record (video). The machine debuted at the 25th annual Rube Goldberg Machine Contest at Purdue University. The team’s entry in last year’s contest, a 244 step machine, was the previous world record holder.
