The Kid Should See This

Creme That Egg, a Pitagora Suichi-inspired chain reaction machine

Watch more with these video collections:

In 2008, Joseph Herscher of Joseph’s Machines launched his YouTube channel with a Pitagora Suichi-inspired chain reaction marble run of sorts that spanned his apartment. The video was called Creme That Egg. And it doesn’t end well for the Cadbury Creme Egg in question.

It was also a peek at the next decade of his chain reaction work. Watch three of our favorites: The Page Turner, The Dresser, and The Cake Server.

Plus: A Japanese ‘Pythagoras Switch’ Rube Goldberg Machine for charity and Pitagora Suitchi – 9 minutes of Japanese Rube Goldberg machines.
