    This is the music video for DJ A-Trak & Tommy Trash's song 'Tuna Melt', featuring an impressive 3:30 domino maze/Rube Goldberg machine, although it was clearly shot in sections. Still, I liked it. A LOT. More than I like my roommate, which is little to none and I actually da... / Continue →

    This is a video of the machine built by Youtube user Hknssn entirely out of LEGO that can fold and launch paper airplanes. Not very complicated paper airplanes mind you, but still better than anything I could make. I remember in high school physics class we had a paper airpla... / Continue →

    Remember the world's most useless machine -- a box that turns off its switch every time you turn it on? Well this is the "Advanced Edition," a version with EIGHT switches. It was made out of an old printer. My love doll? My love doll was made out of an old refrigerator box.... / Continue →

    Now I know what you're thinking, and no, this isn't a scene from Hoarders. It's the world's most complicated Rube Goldberg machine built by Purdue University, who just beat their own record for the Rube Goldeberg machine with the most steps. The last one had 232. This one? ... / Continue →

    This is Rob Higg's "automaton" corkscrew. I'm pretty sure it's the exact same or another iteration of this one he made back in 2009, but I COULD be mistaken. Just kidding -- I could be from the future though because my parents have always been kinda shady about it. Anyway, h... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Rube Goldberg machine built for Valentine's Day. The couple set it into motion as soon as they come in the door, then proceed to get all hot and heavy while it does its thing. Not gonna lie, I was half worried I was gonna see dude's wiener before it was a... / Continue →

    Because I have to run to a doctor's appointment this afternoon (72-hour erection) and I need to get some posts up, here's a Rube Goldberg machine created by kinetic artist Joseph Herscher to turn a single newspaper page. Damn yeah I'll copy/paste the process to make this artic... / Continue →

    This is a 4-minute video of a massive, multi-room sized Rube Goldberg machine that culminates in the taking of a man's portrait (God, just ask a stranger!). I couldn't really find a screencap that would do the machine justice, so it's best if you just watch the video and see f... / Continue →

    Pepsi plans to introduce a new line of touchscreen Pepsi machines that, not only serve cold beverages (♫ I like cold beverages ♫), but also help you interact with your friends by buying them sodas. Which, for the record -- I AM NOT YOUR SUGAR DADDY. Get it? Because of al... / Continue →

    Did you know you can make gears out of wood? Same -- I always thought they had to be made out of metal too! But what do I know? I'm just a man who assumes there's a little coal-burning furnace in his laptop's battery. Anyway, wait till Mr. Spacely finds out about this whole... / Continue →

    A robotic LEGO replicator? Not if this hammer has anything to say about it! (I let my hammer do all the talking because I start stuttering when I get excited) Software engineer by day, Lego maniac by night Will Gorman has created the MakerLegoBot, a machine that can take a v... / Continue →

    Now I know what you're thinking, "GW, that has got to be the most boring-ass picture I have ever seen". And you know what? I couldn't agree more I've got some pictures of the carpet under my sofa you might be interested in. Still -- a milling machine playing the MacGyver the... / Continue →

    Let's face it: the French love their wine (Me? I love other peoples'). And can you blame them? It's like bitter grape juice for adults. Plus -- PLUS -- and here's the real kicker -- it'll get you drunk. I vaguely remember one time I drank two bottles by myself and woke up ... / Continue →

    I hate eating. It takes up precious time plus I'm fat. But what if homecooked meals were easier to make? THEY ARE, THEY'RE CALLED HOT POCKETS. But did that stop MIT cohorts Marcelo Coelho and Amit Zoran from conceptualizing this 'Cornicopia' digital food printer? Oh hell n... / Continue →

    The Ouroborus Domino Machine was created by Karl Lautman and knocks over and picks up dominoes all by itself -- with magic! It's really therapeutic to see. Like watching two children beat each other in the head with plastic bats. But with less cheering and betting. Ouroboru... / Continue →

    Castrol, best known for keeping my ride lubed (double entendre!), went and created a robot to kick the everliving shit out of a soccer ball? Why? Cause they're a bunch of jerks. Is there no end to the effort a company will expend on a promotional stunt? Deemed unsafe for tra... / Continue →

    The ChefStack Pancake Machine is my dream come true and can produce up to 200 golden brown patties from heaven every hour IN THREE DIFFERENT SIZES. WEEEEEEOH WEEEEEOH WEEEEEOH! Sorry, that was an ambulance passing. Where were we? Oh yes, I LOVE PANCAKES. One time I even ha... / Continue →
