We’re at the halfway point of June, and the final Friday before Summer.

We can do this!

It’s also video time…

LEGO Car Factory (red car)

A mostly modular, fully automated car assembly line made completely out of Lego.

Mind-blowing.

Cyclo Knitter by George Barratt-Jones

“I decided on making waiting for your train in the winter more enjoyable.

“By making a man-powered machine that creates scarfs in 5 minutes.”

Pretty great. The expressions on the peoples’ faces when they create their own scarf is kinda great.

Making-of gallery here.

KITKAT Online Factory Tour

This is actually a four part video playlist that tours the KitKat factory in Kasumigaura, Japan.

The Japanese really, really love KitKat, and make a bizarre range of flavors of them including Green Tea.

How to Make Donuts Vending Machine from Cardboard

No joke. A functional donut vending machine. Using the correct coins and everything. From cardboard.

Amazing.

Bonus Video!

Cat Explorer

A 3D VR demo that examines the insides of a cartoon cat.

Pretty well done! Created by Leap Motion, who have been making strides in the VR space for a while.

Note: may seem gross to some people. Your mileage may vary. Void where prohibited.

Have a lovely weekend everybody.
