Remember Mousetrap? It was the best way to see a Rube Goldberg machine in action pre-YouTube. Well Mark Perez created a life-size version of the game that takes up 6,500 square feet and weighs about 50,000 pounds. The giant version of the game was recently shown off at the Maker Faire festival in Queens, NY and has toured science centers and festivals all over the US. The goal is to
get kids back into board games teach kids (and let’s be honest, adults) about Newtonian physics. While that’s great, personally I’d rather play a life-sized version of Chutes and Ladders… oooh or Candy Land!
