melvin the machine

Monday, April 23


Melvin the Machine is simply the coolest Rube Goldberg I have ever seen. {Nerd alert!} The whole point of it is to perform a simple task as inefficiently as possible. So. Basically a parody of my life.
The first Melvin is my favorite, but HEYHEYHEY {the geniuses behind Melvin} just made a new Mini Melvin that's sweet too.

It might be weird, but I love all the sounds. The clicks and pops and taps and all the other sounds are just so crisp and clear. I think the sounds are my favorite part of this whole thing.

Of course, the concept is great too!
