The Engineering Behind the Drinking Bird Toy

The Engineering of the Drinking Bird Toy

Bill Hammack (a.k.a. “Engineer Guy“) takes an in-depth look at the engineering behind the Drinking Bird toy. The classic heat engine toy is available to purchase on Amazon.

Bill reveals the operation and engineering design underlying the famous drinking bird toy. In this video he explores the role played by the water the bird “drinks,” shows what is under the bird’s hat and demonstrates that it can operate using heat from a light bulb or by “drinking” whiskey.
