Pop Tech 2010 : Rube Goldberg Conference Opening

An element of chance and an air of tension draw Heather Knight and her colleagues Chris Becker & Marek Michalowski at Syyn Labs to construct Rube Goldberg contraptions. PopTech followed the team so see if the Rube Goldberg machine they created, mainly from knick-knacks found in antique shops around Camden, ME, to kick off PopTech 2010. And with bated breath, we watched the apparatus come to life – with a little help from some friends.

We in 3 long day sourced all our materials locally to create a Rube Goldberg introduction to the 2010 Poptech Conference in Camden, Maine. We pulled off an elaborite intro with theuse of robot from Heather Knight and a bloon drop that had LED in the balloons.
