Mushroom processing machine

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 08, 2012

You’re not going to believe me, but this mushroom processing machine is pretty fascinating. There’s lots of deceptively simple engineering to mechanically manipulate the mushrooms…the auto-alignment and size-sorting bits are especially interesting.

Plus there’s a trance soundtrack. See also how crayons are made, the robotic pancake sorter, and the salami sorting robot. (via @kdern)
