Just a simple little drawing of W. Heath Robinsons Table and Chairs using one piece Chromium steel (TC 2015 + RedSdk).

Whilst well known in the UK, I'm not sure if Heath Robinson is known on the other side of the pond,  his drawings are humorous but highly impractical.

Hi Andy

It was well worth waiting to see. Thanks for sharing.

Nice, Andy.  The impractical version of those expandable, four-seats-and-a-picnic-table that fold into the size of a suitcase.  In the US, Rube Goldberg drew whimsical descriptive cartoons of complicated, impractical devices that used convoluted multi-stage means to achieve simple ends, in the same vein as Heath Robinson.  That Honda TV ad, "Cog" (on Youtube if you haven't seen it, notoriously took over 600 attempts to get it to run through as designed, nowadays they'd probably cheat with CGI), is a bit of a nod to both of them.

Talk about Rube Goldberg, on news today someone actually designed chairs that repositioned themselves properly tucked under the conference table all in alignment -as if ready for the next meeting.  To paraphrase the newscaster some “how lazy can you get”?  Moreover what company would buy such extravagances in a competitive market?
