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.
