These days, we’ve been scouring the internet more than ever, trying to look for interesting stuff that can help us pass our time.
And in this continuous effort to find anything that’ll keep our sanity intact through these tough times, we chance upon amazing online content that can easily make our day. Case in point, these stop-motion animations of mini engine builds from YouTube channel DIY Garage.
Creating a five-minute stop-motion film is hard enough, and doing so while building tiny engines like these make it exponentially harder. We went around the channel’s videos and we saw one that stood out from the rest: a self-assembling mini engine.
The video features a V-twin engine that you’d normally find on a motorcycle with its parts slowly falling—or crawling, rather—into place on their own. The creator says that he amassed over 6,000 photos through the build, and the entire process along with the actual video took over six weeks to complete.
It’s easily one of the best things we’ve watched all week. Check it out below to see what we’re talking about.
What do you think? Pretty cool, isn’t it? The channel also has a lot of other stop-motion animations of different types of mini-engines like a four-cylinder Toyota engine or a Ford Mustang’s V8. If today isn’t particularly busy for you, you might want to take a look there.
