TINK is a colorful animation by motion design studio Mr. Kaplin that showcases the intricate workings of a fictional Rube Goldberg-like machine. At just 45 seconds long, the very short film takes a close look at several oddly shaped ball bearings, like an oblong one that leaps vertically through a rectangular box, or a line of cubed, metallic pieces that roll in single file down a bright yellow slope. The project evolved from a series of animation experiments created by the London-based studio this past April. You can view more of their animations on Instagram and Vimeo. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)
