Rube Goldberg competition and free icecream at CMU
« on: January 25, 2010, 09:12:40 PM »
Make a machine that makes you icecream - all parts supplied, all icecream free.

For anyone at CMU!

(see attached for more info)

update: date changed to Friday, April 2, due to Snowmageddon.

Great Idea for local clubs to adopt too!  I wonder... does the most complicated design win, or the machine that actually makes an edible ice cream sundae? :D

I'm more worried about screws and grease falling into the ice cream :P

Here is an interesting contest too!  Maybe a team could develop from a forum like this... talk about a grassroots method :-\

dont think of it as grease, think of it as an alternative topping. or use alot of topping to disgise the grease :D

This just in . . .

Quote
Due to the current weather situation (aka Snowmageddon), the Rube Goldberg
Ice Cream Competition has been postponed until *Friday, April 2*. It was
originally scheduled for this Friday, February 12, but we are unable to get
all the supplies (including ice cream) in time for the event.


I've updated the first post to reflect this.
