An amusing Rube Goldberg machine created by Joseph Herscher that helps him flip pages of his newspaper. It somehow manages to look both dangerous and fun at the same time. I wonder how the laptop is doing.
Joseph Herscher takes a sip of his coffee, pulling string thereby tipping paintings. Balls roll down paintings, lighting burner to boil water causing books to tip. Vase and computer get knocked off the table, releasing tape to open front page of newspaper.
Check out the piece about it on The New York Times which explains the machine's components.
