RE: The Most Useless Machine Ever
If you want your own Useless Machine here are the construction plans: http://www.instructables.com/id/The-Most...s-Machine/

And you can buy Useless Parts and Kits here: http://frivolousengineering.com/?page_id=1568

Sorry for the blatant spam, God made me do it (actually I'm an agnostic, but only because formal logic dictates...)

Thanks! If anyone needs help building one, let me know.


Here's some background for anyone interested:

The Machine was invented by Marvin Minsky back in the 50's.

"Isaac Asimov described Minsky as one of only two people he would admit were more intelligent than he was, the other being Carl Sagan" : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvin_Minsky

Here's short clip from an interview of Mr Minsky talking about the Machine:





Cheers!
