We created the world’s first animated 360 degrees Rube Goldberg Machine in 4K. It includes dominoes falling, balls rolling, anvils crashing, and a very flattening finale. It almost features a concertina solo.

“The challenge with creating a narrative rather than a panoramic view is to keep the viewer looking in the right direction,” explains Peter. “I decided to use a Rube Goldberg machine to focus the action in a mostly linear direction. The viewer is of course free to look anywhere though!”

Apart from the character animation, the entire movie is a MassFX physics simulation. It took several hundred simulations before everything finally worked.
