Design studio HEYHEYHEY has brought us another Melvin, a Rube Goldberg machine designed to interact with it’s audience. The first one was a bit too large for any sort of real world application. Now they’ve made Mini Melvin, contained to two suitcases, who will (eventually) stamp and “write” a postcard for you. Both have a digital component that lets them interact with the people it meets. 

A really fun video, with a splendid soundtrack on top of it.

Watch the world’s most awesome Rube Goldberg ‘kinetic sculpture’

London’s Science Museum installed this, the most elaborate Rube Goldberg machine I’ve ever seen, as an illustration of the concept of energy transfer. It ran for one day, and one day only.

No soft toys were injured in the making of this film, which will blow your mind.

This is so incredible, can’t imagine being in charge of setting it all up again. I think my favorite part was still the Venus Flytraps.
