This Obscure Machine Is Strangely Satisfying, You Won’t Be Able To Look Away.

At first glance, you might not know what the hell this thing is. That's okay: We didn't either. However, it actually doesn't matter what it is -- what's more important is what it does.

For disclosure's sake, we'll divulge that it's actually a braiding machine, created to weave fiberglass into large bundles. Again, what the machine is doesn't really matter, as you'll immediately forget once you start watching this video and become deeply entranced by what it's doing. There's something incredibly mesmerizing about watching the machine put all the strands in their right place. It's a good thing this video isn't longer than a minute or so, or we'd be watching all day.
