Man invents insane cake-serving machine


Posted on Friday, 13 April, 2018 | Comment icon 13 comments
This incredible Rube Goldberg machine is designed with one purpose in mind - to serve a slice of cake.
Footage of the absurd contraption, which can be found on the Joesph's Machines YouTube channel, shows the eponymous inventor activating the mechanism while enjoying a roast dinner.

The various stages of the machine utilize a plethora of household objects including a laptop, a glass of orange juice, a stick of butter, a hammer, a phone and even a small child.

Bizarrely, after all that effort, all the device does is dump a slice of cake on to a plate.

"I hate waiting for dessert, so here's a Rube Goldberg machine to streamline dinnertime," the video caption reads. "It lets me keep eating, with no break before cake."

"It's my most complex yet and took three months to make so I hope you enjoy it."

That's certainly a lot of effort just to save having to cut the cake by hand.

Hilarious. This could be a new game show. The winner would be the team whose baby pulls hard enough on the cell phone. It could start out as a reality show on how people try to train their baby to pull on the cell phone fast!

Soooo... This depends on a baby tugging on a lead at the correct time? And no one else watches this and thinks: what a load of crock?! 0 / 10. Boring garbage. Tedious, boring garbage. Actually: zero is quite generous: minus two is more appropriate.
