Bill Gates Ice Bucket Challenge

Bill Gates Accepts Your Ice Bucket Challenge, Zuckerberg — With Style

Listen up, Mark Zuckerberg. Bill Gates not only sees your ice bucket challenge, but also raises it up a level with a homemade ice-bucket-drenching rig. Plus the promise of actually donating money in the name of ALS.

Gates is the latest public figure to join this web trend of dumping ice on themselves to raise awareness for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, a neurodegenerative disease that targets nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. But when Bill Gates accepts a viral challenge, he does it with some flair. Watch below as he draws up plans for the geekiest ice-bucket-dropping device we've yet seen. Also, that view of his waterfront house in the Pacific Northwest is mighty nice.

Who does the former Microsoft CEO challenge? Ryan Seacrest, Elon Musk, and Chris Anderson of TED, you have 24 hours to donate and/or meet the ice bucket challenge.
