360 video of the 2016 Rube Goldberg Machine between the Interactive Media programs of NYU Shanghai and NYU Abu Dhabi. The machine had four phases, two in Abu Dhabi and two in Shanghai and involved both campuses sending data to each other to initiate the next phase of the machine via Socket.IO and Tom Igoe’s Yun Bridge example. The event took place April 18th, 2016.
This is an on-going project within NYU’s global network that will hopefully include more campuses at the next “Rube-Goldberg-A-Thon”.
