Are you prepared for Dr. Boom’s latest diabolical invention? Watch his scientific marvel, the BOOMSDAY DEVICE! This meticulously constructed Rube Goldberg machine is armed with fireballs, ice slides, rockets, Tesla coils, lightning, and SO MUCH MORE! Dr. Boom means business when it comes down to being the world’s best mad genius!
Machine Task: Bring the computer game "Hearthstone" to Life and Simulate Real Gameplay with Fire & Ice Based Modules
Step Count: 63
Machine Build Type: One-Take Style - filmed from start to finish in only one unedited clip, which we achieved on only our SECOND attempt! Even though we were filming using a cameraman guided steady-cam, a large electro-magnet rig dropped from the ceiling while the rockets were igniting, allowing the seamless transition when the Tesla coil activates and we "escape back into the virtual world."
Year Built: 2018
Additional Info: All that fire certainly made the set hot...but add in the 100°F weather courtesy of filming in Los Angeles in July... we were ROASTING! Even with x2 massive air conditioner units we had hired in, the set never reached below 90°F while working. As you can imagine, we had to change out those ice blocks fairly often!
