Melvin the Rube Goldberg Machine

Rube Goldberg Machines are perhaps the ultimate display of OCD Art, and this design, Melvin the Machine, by HEYHEYHEY is pure triumph. Like all good Rube Goldberg Machines, Melvin performs a basic task in a most elaborate fashion. But there’s more to Melvin. The machine tweets, takes pictures and video and even prints its own posters and T-shirts.
All of this action occurs over the course of just 4 minutes. (Resetting Melvin takes the HEYHEYHEY team of five people about 1.5 hours.) Watch feats of engineering in the video below, and then visit http://www.melvinthemachine.com for answers.
