The 2011 Kinetic Sculpture Race was not about speed (photos)
Like a psychedelic gathering of Jules Verne honorable mentions, this weekend's 2011 Kinetic Sculpture Race at Union Reservoir in Longmont pitted crazy Rube Goldberg contraption against even crazier Rube Goldberg contraption in a contest that wasn't so much about speed as it was about sheer silliness: Competitors vied for supremacy in categories that ranged from engineering (the more elaborate the better) to bribery (yes, that is a legit category) to costumes. In short, it's all about the spectacle, and we sent out photographer Dave Ingraham to check it out. He brings back these photos.
