Hereby I submit our latest project: Melvin the Mini Machine
About a year ago, we launched the video and website of Melvin the Magical Mixed Media Machine – a massive self-obsessed Rube Goldberg machine (chain reaction) that made its own merchandise (posters, bags and t-shirts), shot pictures and videos of its spectators and automatically posted them online via Twitter, Facebook and its own website.

Early 2012, we had some time to spare and we felt the need to challenge ourselves once again, so we set out to build another one of our chain reaction machines called Melvin.
Conveniently built in two old suitcases, Melvin the Mini Machine is a Rube Goldberg machine specifically designed to travel the world. Each time Mini Melvin fully completes a run, he ‘signs’ a postcard and sticks a stamp to it – making it ready to be sent.
Like its bigger brother, Melvin the Mini Machine also has an online non-physical side which he uses to connect to the people he meets. To keep things truly mobile Melvin uses a smartphone for his online identity.
