This incredible machine was built at the University of Iowa .
Amazingly, 97% of the machines components came from John Deere Industries and
Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft, Iowa. Yes, farm equipment.

It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video but as you can see, it was WELL worth the effort.

It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is already
slated to be donated to the Smithsonian.
