Artsy Rube Goldberg machine makes eggs, toast, coffee

At Amsterdam's Platform21 design museum last month, kooky Japanese product designers Yuri Suzuki and Masa Kimura — both former assistants at the wonderful art collective Maywa Denki — showed a three-week-long installation that followed the process of him making a giant, functional Rube Goldberg machine that would automatically churn out a full breakfast — coffee, toast, and an omelet. The Breakfast Machine is quite big and impractical, but nonetheless wonderful.

There's a video of the machine at work after the jump.
