Bill Gates takes ice bucket challenge to new heights

Bill Gates just topped Tim Cook’s ice bucket challenge



Less than an hour ago, Microsoft founder and super rich guy Bill Gates took the ice bucket challenge, which has various famous folks dumping cold water over their heads to raise awareness for Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS).

While Tim Cook completed the challenge himself at an Apple employee event, Bill Gates has gone even further — he built a crazy contraption to dump a ton of ice water on his head. The video (below) shows his planning attempts, complete with Comic Sans blueprints and a Surface tablet to do all the work and YouTubery.

That’s one heck of a machine, right?

Gates also took the challenge to three other people, as he himself was challenged by Mark Zuckerberg. He names technologist Elon Musk, radio personality Ryan Seacrest, and Chris Anderson of TED in his challenge list, which he recreated on Twitter as well.

Seems like Gates has raised the bar, right? He’s definitely the consensus winner on Twitter right now. But what do you think?
