Useless Machine 2.0
product design — 2016
This experimental machine derived from the well-known 'useless machines' designed by Marvin Minsky, in which the device's sole function is to switch itself off by operating its own 'off' switch. A useless machine is a device which has a function but no direct purpose. It may be intended to make a philosophical point, as an intellectual joke, or as an amusing engineering 'hack' to experiment with.
