Presentation --- Contraptions: the (Rube) Goldberg Variations – Bizarre Victorian Inventions which actucally existed but never caught on (Presented by Prof. Mark P. Donnelly)
History is full of ingenious inventions. Progress through civilization has always been fueled by scientists, engineers and inventors. But not all inventions lead to progress. This presentation highlights some of the most bizarre inventions and ideas to come out of the industrial revolution. These are the Victorian equivalent of the shake weight or the sham wow. Though arguably ingenious and creative, these are the Inventions No One Mentions.
