Introduction: Rube Goldberg Dog Food Dispencer

This is a Rube Goldberg Dog Food Dispencer that my friend and i made for a science project. It consists of over 28 steps and it is huge. I put it on instructables to share my Rube Goldberg Machine and to help you make your own.

Here is ours.


Step 1: Dicide on Parts

I picked a pulley because we had to use the five simple machines.
Then some books, for good measure.
Then a wheel down a inclined plane.
Then a ring slide.
To the hotwheel tracks.
Then some dominoes.
More dominoes.
To a car. Then a catapault. Then a rollercoaster.
To a marble run to a cup. Then pour the food.

Step 2: Many Steps or Few Steps

You can use as many steps as you want.
Here they all are in order.
Pull pulley. Which knocks books over. To hit wheel down ramp. To hit ring slide. To hit marble. To hit dominoes which hit mousetrap to release car which launches catapault. To throw ball to hit mousetrap. That releases rollercoaster to hit marble run which knocks marble down run into cup. Cup slides down hitting dominoes. Setting off mousetrap to tip cup to pour the dog food. PHEW!

Step 3: NOW MAKE YOUR OWN AND VIDEO IT!!!

Make your own Rube Goldberg Machine and video it!!!

Try to use as many steps possible making sure it works alright.

Have fun!

    wouldn't the end noise scare the sh*t out of the dog?

    what is the song in the see it in action part?

    This is awesome and everything, but in real life, wouldnt you just get a box of dog food and pour it in the bowl lol? :P

    your missing the point. It is a rube goldburg machine, so it doesn't have to be practical.

    Cool! and you got some K'NEX in there too.
    Also known as a "Heath Robinson" machine.

    I didn't know that.

    Please make an all knex rube goldburg machine.

    Why don't you? Isn't that what instructables is for? Try to show us how to do it?
