BMW Group Design invites you: Rube-Goldberg Workshop at the MakerSpace

  • Workshop
MakerSpace im Munich Urban Colab
Freddie-Mercury-Straße 5, 80797 München

“Design follows Function” becomes “Design follows Experience”.
Create, invent and see how all things are interconnected – and ultimately yield new experiences – RE:THINK.

Experience the MakerSpace in the newly opened Munich Urban Colab. You will find a 1200 sqm high-tech workshop that is open to the public and provides access to machines, tools and software as well as to a creative community. A place where ideas and innovations are brought to life as prototypes and small series.

What awaits you?

A Rube Goldberg machine, named after the American cartoonist Rube Goldberg, is a chain-reaction-type machine that is deliberately designed to perform a simple task in a consistent yet overly complicated way.

The focus is not on practical utility but on the pleasure of observation and the understanding of dependencies and interconnections.

The participants tinker and build independently in groups of two or three. A wide range of materials and hardware will be provided, including Legos, Lego robot kits, iPads, IoT sensors and actuators, building and craft materials. No previous experience is required.

RE:THINK - new materials, new technologies, new processes and new ideas altogether.
For BMW Group Design, the focus lies on the human being with his/her creativity and the sheer joy of doing.

We look forward to sharing design experiences with you!
