This Rube Goldberg Machine Takes 9 Minutes to Pour a Glass of Lemonade

When you could just walk over to the fridge, nine minutes seems like a long time to wait for a glass of lemonade. In this case, it’s totally worth it. What you are looking at is a ridiculously long Rube Goldberg machine that spans the entire house just to pour a few glasses of lemonade. I mean, I would have poured you a glass if you just asked. There’s no need to build a huge machine. Geesh.

This overly-complicated contraption was built by a team of talented machine builders: Sprice MachinesDoodleChaosTheInvention11Hevesh55MadMovieMakersDrComplicated, and SmileyPeaceFun. Needless to say, they really, really like lemonade. This was their first ever house-wide machine project and probably their last if anyone’s wife lives in this house. The machine travels through the kitchen, a kid’s room, bathroom, office, parent’s room, living room, patio, and backyard while using everyday objects to eventually achieve its goal.

This machine is one of the cooler ones I’ve seen in some time and superbly designed, except for, you know, the fact that you have to wait nine minutes to get a drink. This must have taken a long time to set up, and lots of trial and error. But the promise of that sweet and tart lemon drink must have driven them forward. Minute Maid? Meh. We can beat that with Nine-Minute Made lemonade!
