The Rube Goldberg Machine; Tea Time!

This work achieves the vision I had in the beginning of my idea with the Rube Goldberg Machine before I delved into different facets of the notion. I applied the Rube Goldberg Machine in performing a household task and documented it in a skit-like format to appeal to a larger audience in terms of entertainment.

Rube Goldberg Machine 360º Video

From what I have experienced online, the logistics of documenting The Rube Goldberg Machine have proceeded in the same fashion (A point of view camera angle following the series of chain reactions or multiple cameras filming different sections of the RGM then merging those clips together).

360º technology has allowed me to shift the way we as an audience interact with my work and potentially the entirety of the Rube Goldberg Machine as this is the only real-life 360º RGM video I have come across online. The only other is an animation which can be found here.  It allows a complete user-controlled experience and perspective where consumers are now the directors in consuming content.
