Museum of things that dont work
This museum is a celebration of fascinating devices that don't work. It houses diverse examples of the perverse genius of inventors who refused to let their thinking be intimidated by the laws of nature, remaining optimistic in the face of repeated failures. Watch and be amazed as we bring to life eccentric and even intricate perpetual motion machines that have remained steadfastly unmoving since their inception. Marvel at the ingenuity of the human mind, as it reinvents the square wheel in all of its possible variations. Exercise your mind to puzzle out exactly why they don't work as the inventors intended.

Also check out the Physics gallery

Amazing cloth peg collection

Check out the amazing collection of cloth pegs from an exibition curated by Israeli designer Yaacov Kaufman and displayed in his studio in Jaffa.

"...The humble clothes peg is a daily, mundane, banal object, which we all seem to posses, though we rarely look at. They function as silent servants. An object simutaneously basic and useful, it performs many functions in addition beyond its original intent. It can be used to hang, hold and fasten and endless number of materials, making it as versatile as the paper clip...."

origami architecture

origami architecture (OA) is the art of making pop-up cards by cutting and folding paper. It transforms a three-dimensional object to a two-dimensional pattern and back to a three-dimensional object again.
It was invented by a Japanese architecture professor, Masahiro Chatani, in 1980. The first origami architecture card he designed was a New Year card for his friends. He later uses origami architecture to promote architecture and its related issues to the general public. His works have been exhibited internationally, including at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
