Schönes RubeGoldberg-Commercial für die kommende Online-Wissenschaftsmesse von Google.

Google has partnered with CERN, LEGO, National Geographic and Scientific American to create a new kind of online science competition that is more global, open and inclusive than ever before. Students aged 13 - 18 from around the world are invited to enter and compete for awesome once-a-lifetime experiences, scholarships and real-life work opportunities.

Das Ding kommt übrigens von denselben Leuten, die auch OK GOs RubeGoldberg-Musikvideo zu „This Too Shall Pass“ gemacht haben: Syyn Labs's League of Extraordinary Nerds.

"We're a sensationalism service," says Brent Bushnell.

Ask cofounder Adam Sadowsky and he says, "We're a one-stop production company: We make physical art that moves people."

"We want to be the 'engineering is cool' group," Bushnell adds.

Another cofounder, Eric Gradman, sums it up this way: "We're a glorified drinking club with an art problem."

In the meanwhile: Google kann jetzt mit einer App für Android Sudoku lösen. Video dazu nach dem Klick.
