    Product Overview

    Useless Machine Kit - No Soldering What is a Useless Machine you ask? Flip the switch and find out! When flipped on, a motorized arm pops up out of the box, flips the switch off, and then hides back inside.

Best of all, you'll only need a screwdriver for assembly. No soldering required!
