Are you a thinker? Please consider subscribing. We designed, built, and ran this fire-based Rube Goldberg in 36 hours.

Sorry to dissapoint, it’s just an air tank. Fire extinguishers were EVERYWHERE just in case. I’ll show more in the setup videos, which are uploading now.

The sequence of events is as follows:
Remote Control Vacuum cleaner is turned on
Fire tornado increases vorticity, thus raises in height
Cannon fuse is lit by fire tornado
Fuze breaks link holding up hammer
Hammer falls, pulling string
String pull trigger on Rifle
Rifle fires bullet across table and strikes matches
Matches light and ignite another fuze
Fuze lights gunpowder transfer tray
Gunpowder lights rocket
Rocket lights gasoline
Gasoline ignites 2 rockets and 2 Roman Candles
Rockets ignite Bonfire and fireworks

A buddy of mine from Canada did the music. He’s pretty sharp with the tunes and can crank out customized songs pretty quickly. If you’re interested here’s how to get in touch with him:

Music written and recorded by A Shell in the Pit–
Commission music for your project (or ask questions, chat, etc.) here–
Buy music (for non-commercial use) here–

(If I did this right these should be working Amazon affiliate links to purchase the stuff I like to use. When people purchase from these links it will support Smarter Every Day.)

Instead of saving for my kids’ college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please share the video.
