Have you ever tried to eat and play video games at the same time? Or maybe you’ve tried to snack and type all at once? What if your hands are occupied with a boss battle or you don’t want to get your keyboard full of food.

Rashid brings this exact challenge to inventor and Rube Goldberg aficionado Joseph Herscher for the New Zealand-based web series What’s Your Problem? In the video above, Mikayla Stokes, Brett Doar, John Osborne, and Herscher attempt to build a few hands-free snacking contraptions.
