Christmas is a magical time of year. Think about it. Some fat guy rides a sleigh led by reindeer – in the sky no less – lands on your roof, slides down your chimney and delivers you presents. For free! I call that magic! But the truth is that it’s not free. It’s a lot of work preparing for this holiday. Just wrapping the gifts and decorating the tree take quite a bit of time and energy. Luckily, Joseph Herscher of Joseph’s Machines has a solution.
Joe is an inventor of useless machines, but this time his machine is pretty handy. You see, Joe has created a solution to easily wrap presents. His invention uses a some notepads, a drill, a bicycle wheel, a roll of tape, and a length of rope. Seriously, that’s it. This will be a real timesaver at Christmas, or any time you need to wrap gifts – or sandwiches. He also demonstrates how a similar rig can help you quickly decorate your tree next year. Just be warned, things can get a little messy.
It takes a little trial and error, but ultimately, he’s able to decorate an entire tree in about 10 seconds.
