Thomas A. Edison, the father of the light bulb, once said that in order to invent something ‘you need a good imagination and a pile of junk’. And there are people who tested this approach to find out if that really is indeed the best way to invent something. Something not necessarily useful. Because who says machines must be useful? At least that’s the question that Joseph Herscher, better known as Joseph’s Machines, asks, before turning everything that surrounds him into mesmerizing chain-reaction machines. This time, Joseph has changed the rules of his own game by presenting The Cake Server, the most sophisticated machine that he has created to date. Watch as the insane mechanism unfolds in front of your eyes and Joseph continues eating his dinner.
Joseph Herscher, who goes by the alias of Joseph’s Machines, constructs chain-reaction machines
But this time he has created a machine that is beyond impressive
The machine is called ‘The Cake Server’ and it requires Joseph to sit still and enjoy his dinner
And to take a sip of juice
Because right after
The show begins
And it contains everything, from liquids, moving around in an organized manner
To butter, traveling from table to table by itself
To flying hammers
That they themselves carry even more hammers so they can arrange a Skype call
On a laptop which is not going to survive
Iphones that are about to fall down
To be caught by a baby that appears out of nowhere
Also giant wheels that roll above your head almost causing an injury
Do not seem to bother the inventor, as he patiently awaits
The perfect slice of pie to be served onto his plate without him even moving a finger
His outstanding talent has been recognized outside his dining room as well
Witness the whole spectacle right here
People were either impressed or confused
