Rube Goldberg machines are always fun because you get to see everything happen in a linear fashion and yet still don’t know what the grand finale is. It’s like you kind of, sort of see where it’s going but still remain excited on the next step of the machine. This Rube Goldberg machine by Arrow FiveYearsOut is even…
DMG MORI has combined laser deposition welding and precision material removal in this amazing machine. Watching this thing move to build different parts and components feels like an special effect from Tony Stark's machine shop.
When I first saw this video I thought someone invented an insanely fast machine to cook delicious shrimps in just a few seconds. Thinking it through, I soon realized it was impossible. It's from a fake cooking show made to advertise the Japanese mobile phone operator NTT Docomo.

Seriously. Watching this awesome machine bend wires in different shapes puts my brain into deep hipnotoad mode. The manufacturer claims it is the fastest wire bending machine in the world. I don't know if that's true or not, but it's unreal. How the hell does this thing work?
Here's a question I'm not sure I want to know the answer for: if Skittles and M&M's came in individual packets for each flavor, would I combine them and eat them like how I do now (in a pile shoved into my mouth) or would I keep the flavors separate and enjoy them on their own?

When Wired posted its list of "The World's Most Annoying Technologies" a few weeks back, "The Most Useless Machine" (a box with a toggle switch, which, when flipped, causes a mechanical nubbin to emerge from inside the box, flip the switch back, then retreat back inside the box) didn't even get an honorable mention.
Like everyone else, we love Rube Goldberg machines. And we love them even more when they are built around two basic elements: gasoline and gunpowder. Now I want to see one that involves a canon and spans through half a mile. [Thanks Karl!]
