Purdue 2012 Guinness World Record Breaking Machine

The Purdue SPE team smashed its own Guinness world record for largest Rube Goldberg machine with a 300-step behemoth that flawlessly accomplished the simple task of blowing up and popping a balloon.


Our 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.


In a nod to Purdue's Boilermaker mascot, the team powered portions of the machine with a homemade boiler system with an elaborate locomotive-like drive system that inflated the balloon.

Along the way, the world is humorously destroyed by a meteor, an ice age, the Great Flood, world war and alien invasion.
