Rube Goldberg Breakfast Machine Cobbled Together From Household Items: Instructions Please!

by Lambert Varias

For so long, the breakfast options of lazy people like me were severely limited: either eat something that you only need to take out of its package, something with no cooking or preparation required, or wait for someone to prepare food for you. No more! Teacher/artist/lazy man’s hero Yuki Suzuki and his friends built a machine that makes toast, orange juice, coffee and even cooks eggs all on its own.

The machine was put together mostly from items that Suzuki got from IKEA, so its very possible for you to make your own version of the machine. The Telegraph calls it a “Wallace and Gromit-style” machine, which I think is the best way to describe it.

That’s Suzuki, looking like he’s badly in need of food himself,  inspecting his creation. He said that he spent a total of £900 ($1,475 USD) for the parts. The machine, which measures 43 feet by 10 feet, took Suzuki and his friends about 88 hours to complete. It was put together at Platform 21, an exhibition center in Amsterdam.  Let’s watch it at work! (there’s more info for you if you can understand French Dutch (dank je Lars!))

I wish Suzuki would post instructions for making the breakfast machine. Then again even if I had the instructions I’d be too lazy to go and build one for myself.
