(Pic) Perpetual Frustration Machine?
Is this tabletop device the most useless machine ever or an interesting glimpse into behavioral mechanics?
PSFK Conference speaker Rob Walker points us to what might indeed be the most useless machine ever, a tabletop gadget that appears to have a level of Pavlovian automated response engineered into its core functionality. While we’re not quite sure how long the inner mechanisms are designed to last, in theory the device is certainly an interesting approach to the idea of perpetual motion – though perhaps never-ending frustration is more apt.
