Kinetic artist Joseph Herscher (previously) of Joseph’s Machines invited fellow machine maker Lyle Broughton over for dinner. The two sat at each end of a very long table. When Herscher asked Broughton to please pass the pepper, he started an intricate Rube Goldberg machine that ran the length of the table and took over five minutes to reach the other end.
Use this foolproof method for completely safe, germ-free passing of condiments across the table.
The two chain-reaction artists spent over two months collaborating on this project. Broughton explains how this machine was made in a helpful behind-the-scenes video.
For the past 2 months, Joseph and I have been collaborating and building these nine clips for Pass the Pepper. There was a lot of work that went into creating these machines, and in this video, we’ll reveal all the secrets!
