300-step beast beats Purdue's record from last year

I had to build a Rube Goldberg machine when I was in high school for science project and they're much more complex than they might seem. I can seriously appreciate the effort that went into designing and building this world record-setting Rube Goldberg machine that is constructed by the Purdue Society of Professional Engineers.

The massive machine has 300 steps. The point of the complicated machine was to inflate a balloon and then pop it. The machine has rotating parts and is very complex. You have to see the video to understand what I'm talking about, even though the video isn't that clear.
