See An Adorably British Rube Goldberg Machine Make Breakfast
Inventors Peter Browne and Mervyn Huggett reportedly spent over 1,000 hours building this charming Rube Goldberg machine to make breakfast for their respective wives.
In addition to brewing a lovely cup of tea (or instant coffee if you’d rather) the Rube Goldberg machine also hands you the paper, soft-boils an egg, toasts some toast, and cleans up afterwards.
It’s a charming idea, even if constructing it does mean expending a considerable amount of effort in order to to avoid very simple cooking tasks. Tea and toast is not exactly a sumptuous brunch spread. But, still, we’re getting hungry.
Clearly, it’s time to fire up the machine again.
