OK, OK, maybe I'll have a peek.
It was worth watching. They basically did their version of the “Ok! Go” set up. Having the Cokes pour near the end was a nice touch.
Way too much energy. Wayyyyy too much. Couldn’t make it through the video.
Rube would be proud.
Was this done specifically for Coca Cola? Or did these kids do this then Coke adopted it?
This looks like a college crowd, this sums up what kids are doing with their spare time at college. Should we be suprised that America is not producing enough Science/Math oriented kids and their inability to payback their guaranteed student loans??? Should we be suprised?
There was plenty of science and math used in constructing that contraption. You don’t do that off the cuff.
Funny, I was just thinking it was nice to see innovation and creativity on campus. :)
Rube Goldberg would be proud.
Okay folks. Here is your quiz question for this a.m.:
What is the difference between Diet Coca-Cola in the red can and Zero Coca-Cola in the black can?
Nada. None what so ever.
The company decided that diet was a feminine term and needed something masculine sounding (and looking). Hence, they came up with Zero in a black can.
It is the same, exact recipe for both.
(I ran across this information while googling to find if there was a coke with no caffeine and no sugar on the market.)
I have that piece of junk Vista and the sound is not working this morning.
Interesting...I’ll have to let my son know. He likes Zero Coke, not sure if he’s had a diet Coke. I used to by the caffeine-free Coke, it has a gold label. Hard to find, though.

I can tell the difference, or perhaps I “think” I can because I did not do a blind taste test. Zero tastes a bit “better” for me, than diet coke. Diet coke, instantly fake tasting. Coke Zero, still different than real coke, but better that Diet. I’ll have to try again, but it was not close for me.
I disagree - this is physics and engineering in practice, a real world test of kinetic and potential energy states, friction and parabolas. While the spectators might have been there for the fun, the builders and designers were demonstrating real skills, easily converted to real jobs with a future.
There is an annual nationwide Rube Goldberg college-level contest hosted by Purdue University. Their definition of a Rube Goldberg machine is a process of 20 steps (or more) to accomplish a simple task. 2012 task was to inflate a balloon, 2013 will be to hammer a nail. Of course these examples have to be 'portable' and small enough to be cheek-by-jowl with their competitors.
This Coke example is far too large to be used there as is another corporate classic that I have loved for years, Honda UK Accord commercial.
