1. 16-311 Introduction to Robotics Lab 1: Rube Goldberg Machine Teaching Assistants: Richard Juchniewicz Steven Shamlian

2. What is a Rube Goldberg Machine? • A Rube Goldberg machine is a device that achieves a simple task through a process of overly complex steps.

3. Example R. G. Machine

4. Challenge Statement • Build a Rube Goldberg machine that will dispense a Super Bouncy Ball when a TA inserts a quarter.

5. Constraints • Base Constraints: 3’x 4’ • Height Constraints: 5’ • Cannot use electricity in the forms of batteries or wall power. Other forms of power generation welcomed.

6. Grading • A(95): 5 Energy Transfers • B(85): 4 Energy Transfers • C(75): 3 Energy Transfers • D(65): 2 Energy Transfers • F(55): < 2 Energy Transfers • F- (0): No Machine at all 

7. Bonus Points • +5 points (+2 after) for each machine successfully attached to another machine in serial. • A serial connected machine is defined as one whose first energy transfer is initiated by the final energy transfer of the previous machine.

8. Bonus Points (cont.) • Ex: 2 machines together  +5 bonus 3 machines together  +7 bonus ………. 10 machines together +21 bonus!! • Bonus Points = 5+(n-2)*2 • n = total number machines that run to completion in serial
