A Machine that Wakes You Up and Gets You Dressed


(Video link here.) At the consistently wonderful The Kids Should See This, we found kinetic artist Joseph Herscher‘s machine for getting himself out of bed and dressed on a sleepy morning. The chain-reaction is astonishing for its creativity, imagination and mesmerizing practicality, everything that Rube Goldberg‘s own inventions embodied.

We love (and share) Herscher’s view of the world,eloquently and simply expressed in the behind-the-scenes interview that follows (video link here):

“There is potential in everything around us for play and whimsy and interesting interactions that we don’t even think about. There’s all this potential for magic in the world that we don’t even think about.” 

Check out Hersher’s Page Turner machine here.

In the meantime, we’re going to order
