Central Texas Makers’ team Rube Goldberg Machine Project

  • #RubeGoldberg #Project

So it begins, first submission for the Central Texas Makers’ team Rube Goldberg Machine Project.

All submission will be upload to this album for fellow makers to see and brainstorm the final piecing together all ideas into one functioning Rube Goldberg Machine.

Instructions:
Central Texas Maker collaborative project will be  “Rube Goldberg” type machine which will be displayed at the CCPL for the community to see and learn what cool things are happening at the library.  Initially the group decided to have multiple parts that come together to make this project.  This allows each member to participate.

  • To participate you’ll need to do the following:
    • Draw your mini Rube Goldberg project idea
    • List the materials needed to make this happen.
    • Submit a photo of it to evelyn.nelson (at) CentralTexasMakers.com
      • Evelyn will create a page showing your drawing and material list.  Use the comment section for discussion.
      • On the next Central Texas Maker Club meeting we’ll bring all ideas and start the process of making this project.

  • Some random ideas:
    I can provide a 4’x4′ plywood base.
    Can we standardize on 1/2″ ball bearings and 3/4″ clear plastic tubing for many applications?
    Any support structures can be assembled from 3D printed or laser-cut parts.
    All sensors, lights, switches and sound effects can be controlled through arduino boards.
    I want to make a small steel helmet that gets hit by a ball bearing to trigger a switch.
