Take a break from racking your brain over robotics, and watch this.

This video BLOWS my mind! I can’t figure out just how the forced perspective works in this, but anyone who figures it out please say so!

The guy’s shadow looks weird as he walks in front of the device. There are a few jumps in the video that might be edits, right as he starts to pour and again as the liquid is reaching the top leg. The way the waterwheel reacts seems weird, it looks like it takes off running at full speed as soon as the liquid hits. Maybe the whole device is just an animation.
