    Here is the YouTube video of the Purdue world record Rube Goldberg 2011 Machine

    In the caption it states:
    The 2011 Purdue University Rube Goldberg machine shattered the world record for most steps ever successfully completed by such a machine. In 244 steps the “Time Machine” traces the history of the world from Big Bang to the Apocalypse before accomplishing the assigned everyday task of watering a flower. The machine is featured in the online edition of the World Records Academy and has been submitted to the World Records Academy.
