Red Bull, known worldwide for celebrating all things extreme, has again gone viralviral. For their latest masterpiece, they again mix the concept of a Rube Goldberg machine with more than a few dashes of daredevil athleticism.
Red Bull is famous–be it in real life or online–for obsessing and celebrating all things ‘extreme.’ So when they decided to take on the popular online past time of Rube Goldberg Machine making, they knew they had to do something different to stick out from the saturated crowd.
Lucky for them, they knew a couple athletic freerunners who interested in the project, like Jason Paul, to star in this ‘Human-Powered Freerunning Machine‘ video that has gone viralviral.
A group of smart nerds can accomplish anything. And when they want to make the world’s largest, most extensive Rube Goldberg Machine, they do it.
In this case, it is The Purdue Society of Professional Engineers team that made the outrageously complex machine with three hundred steps. The video is featured on WorldRecordAcademy, SlashGear, BussinessInsider and TheAwesomer.
Now a days, everything is digital, but not long ago, all technology was entirely mechanical. With no electricity, wires, or programs, people can still make impressive machines.
Just take this overly complex de-corking machine that is entirely mechanical, and just went viral taking the ‘net by storm. Just by cranking the wheel, the machine grabs the bottle, takes out the cork, and, most impressively, even pours a perfect glass of wine. The video is covered by RightThisMinute.
