About Joseph's Machines

Joseph Herscher is here to answer the all-important question, "Who says machines must be useful? The kinetic artist has gained popularity on YouTube and Instagram in recent years under the moniker "Joseph’s Machines," thanks to his comical and innovative, creative, chain-reaction machines. He’s grown his social following to include 740K+ YouTube subscribers along with his 340K+ Instagram and 40K+ Twitter followers, all of whom tune in to see which basic problem Joseph has conveniently found a fix for. These machines help him in his daily life, feeding him sandwiches and providing death-defying haircuts, even building a device to help people eat while sunbathing.
