MO Round 3: Heath Flor Vs. Raphael Heusser . Here is my entry into round 3 of the MOC Olympics, a Rube Goldberg machine. Fun. . Raphael Heusser vs Heath Flor Rube Goldberg: Rube Goldberg machines are impossibly complex machines that perform exceedingly simple tasks. Build us your version of a Rube Goldberg machine and show us how it works. You do not HAVE to have a video of the machine working (but it would REALLY help) and NO deductions will be made if you don't have one. If you don't (which is TOTALLY fine), then we suggest step by step pictures of your machine at each phase of movement. And this part kinda goes without saying but... the machine MUST work. You can find my worthy opponent's entry HERE You can find the Moc Olympics homepage HERE Here it is in all its glory: Yes, she really works! It took about 50+ tries to get this to work enough to call it a day. The dry runs went well, but as soon as I started recording it was one disaster after another. I drained my battery on my camera, my tablet, and most of the memory on my phone before we finally captured this bit. Those eye rolls of my wife are real by this point. LMAO Some keen eyes may notice a stoppage at :15....and then it mysteriously restarts. I have no comment. :P I swear it works, but to get it all to work at once while filming was going to be nothing short of a miracle. Unfortunately there were a ton of mishaps, but one in particular had me raging....after I slammed my hands on the counter after a false start, the dominoes tumbled down and the rest of the machine took over and prematurely poured the whisky....I was furious. Needless to say, it took quite a few times to get this right. When the categories were announced we were on vacation in California for LEGOland. I was trying to figure out WTF I was going to do when my step son said "You should make it pour you some whisky, since you drink it all the time." Kids say the darnedest things. The machine starts off with a ball being rolled down these 4 ramps... Which lands on this feeder ramp.... Which triggers the mummy to swing across.... Where he nudges another ball down this ramp.... Onto another ramp, which trips a trigger and releases the wheel.... Which hits the ghost dominoes..... Which in turn triggers the catapult. This pulls a stop on the cool machine I can't think of the name for.... The ball rolls down the rails and drops on the trigger holding Dracula... He tumbles onto a switch that releases the car..... Which races off the counter and snatches the stop between the bottle and glass. Gravity takes over from there, and then I drink my whisky. ;) The machine was a challenge to do for sure. I don't foresee anymore LEGO Rube Goldberg machines in the future. However, it has definitely spurred some interest in the family to possibly create another one out of different materials. We'll see. Good luck to Raphael and the other contestants! And thanks a LOT judges. :/ LMFAO!
