The Sun Blocker: Rube Goldberg-style sunscreen contraptions

Watch more with these video collections:

It’s annoying to have to put on sunscreen before you go outside to play. And it’s especially hard to put sunscreen on your back without asking someone for some help. How can the entire ordeal be made easier? Or more fun? Sunscreen contraptions, of course.

Rube Goldberg machine aficionado Joseph Herscher is on the case with his new video series What’s Your Problem? In this episode, kid A.J. Rutherford asks Herscher and a team of New Zealand-based inventorsβ€”Mikayla Stokes, Brett Doar, and John Osborneβ€”to find a better way to apply sunscreen. It doesn’t always go as planned.
