Public design laboratory Platform 21 unveiled something awfully tasty in Amsterdam this week, a Rube-Goldberg device that harnesses simple mechanics to make (drumroll, please...) breakfast!
Japanese artist Masa Kimura teamed up with industrial designer Yuri Suzuki--whose past inventions include the graffiti radio, sound jewelry, and Bluetooth tap shoes--to create a multi-function machine that can assemble an omelet, toast with jam, coffee, tea, and orange juice. So far, no serious oven action, but a decent effort considering the team constructed the breakfast machine in a mere fortnight.
Watch the machine in action:
Wallace and Gromit would certainly approve.
