The Useless Machine is a gizmo that turns itself off when you switch it on. But how? Is there a little stubborn person in the box playing a trick on you? Is it magic? No, it's a set of switches with a small motor and you get to put together! By building the kit yourself only you will know the secret of how it works. When you show it to your friends and co-workers, keep them guessing - after all you built it, it's your secret!
Invented in 1952 by Marvin Minsky and sold under various names such as "ultimate machine", "Leave Me Alone Box" and others. We called ours the "The Useless Machine".
After many months of design, we are really excited about the clean design and ease of assembly of this kit. Plus, there is no soldering to do, all you need is a simple set of screwdrivers.
The The Useless Machine is a really fun kit to put together. But the fun doesn't end there because everyone will want to flip your switch! Perfect on the desk of a Wall Street executive or for a grade school student doing show and tell. Get one today for you desk or your next show and tell presentation.
