Project Info:

The Rube Goldberg Machine starts out simple: over several 3D printed tracks, marbles cascade down into a sliding container connected to a paperclip on a metal clip. Once the paperclip is separated from the metal, the Arduino triggers a pouring cup to disperse water to a container. When two metal wires detect a current flowing through them (conducted by the wire), the elevator raises.
