Decided to change it up a bit today, after I came across this awesome short video created by HEYHEYHEY. The clip, entitled “Melvin the Mini Machine”, features a Rude Goldberg machine that is conveniently stored in two suitcases. All it takes is a little set up, and its ready to rock and roll. I know it’s not a music video, but it is a video and it does have some music, and I couldn’t resist posting it. Read more below:
Early 2012, HEYHEYHEY had some time to spare and they felt the need to challenge themselves once again, so they set out to build another one of their chain reaction machines called Melvin.
Conveniently built in two old suitcases, Melvin the Mini Machine is a Rube Goldberg machine specifically designed to travel the world. Each time Melvin fully completes a run, he ‘signs’ a postcard and sticks a stamp to it – making it ready to be sent.
Like its bigger brother, Melvin the Mini Machine also has an online non-physical side which he uses to connect to the people he meets. To keep things truly mobile Melvin uses a smartphone for his online identity.
