Oh Wow: A Nine Minute Lemonade-Pouring Rube Goldberg Machine

September 18, 2018


This is a nine minute long, entire house spanning Rube Goldberg machine that pours lemonade, built as a collaboration between complicated machine builders Sprice Machines, DoodleChaos, TheInvention11, Hevesh5, 5MadMovieMakers, DrComplicated, and SmileyPeaceFun. Man, I wish I had friends with similar hobbies as mine. "What do you like doing?" Beating up friends.

Our first ever house wide machine project - The Lemonade Machine. This complex chain reaction travels through the kitchen, kid's room, bathroom, office, parent's room, living room, patio & backyard using everyday objects to automatically pour lemonade for the entire team of builders.

Pretty impressive, but I'd be lying if I said I watched the whole thing instead of just going down to the cafe and ordering a lemonade. "That's definitely a margarita." *shrugs, takes a sip* It's five o'clock somewhere. I'm guessing somewhere eight hours ahead of here. London maybe?

Keep going for the video, which really is impressive.

Thanks to Melissa, who agrees there are children with lemonade stands who can serve a drink faster.

    nine minute video?

    Thats like three times the attention span of the average internet user.

    Just skip around to hit the highlights.

    weird, i read the title and was like 'nope, not going to watch 9 minutes of that'
    yay for their dedication!

  • TheQiwiMan

    There were so many clever little additions to this.

    But while I can appreciate the dedication and mastery on display, like Mariachi music, it's just not my cup of tea.

    it takes real dedication to render an entire house unusable just to pour some lemonade
