Peter Browne and his buddy Mervyn Huggett spent around 1,000 hours making a Rube Goldberg machine that delivers food and fun. The Sunday Morning Breakfast Machine can make a slice of toast, a soft-boiled egg and a cup of tea or coffee all at once.
We’ve seen all manner of Rube Goldberg machines over the years, but never one as precise as this one from Seiko, that uses some 1200 watch parts and watchmaking tools in its design. It required a little human assist along the way, but it’s still pretty awesome.
YouTuber berlagawesome spent a total of 140h creating and trying to get his 175-step Rube Goldberg machine to work completely. There’s a thrift shop’s worth of odds and ends in there, and halfway through we actually forgot what its purpose was. Single camera perspective here.
When was the last time a Rube Goldberg machine made your heart race? Because this classic from Japanese children’s show Pitagora Suichi is as exciting as an Indiana Jones flick. Plus it has an awesome theme song. “I’ll be there brothers, hang on, almost there!”
