This virtual Rube- Goldberg machine consists of 7 different physics principles in the duration of about 30 seconds which includes elastic and inelastic collision ,energy and momentum conservation , circular motion, torque and projectile motion in 2 dimensions. The biggest challenge to construct this Rube Goldberg Machine is to elaborately use different indexes and functions in Blender ( an app used to make physics model ) to support my ideal machine. During this process, I not only developed a deep understanding of many physics concepts, but also learnt IT techniques. Finally, my machine managed to complete seven consecutive steps and achieve the aim to crash the egg. ( although hard to operate the last step virtually)
