Congratulations to ThinkGeek and the above viral success.
Keep in mind that even though the Useless Box closely resembles the Ultimate Useless Machine there are significant differences:
- The “Useless Box” is much harder to build because it doesn’t have a circuit board.
- It’s also $10 bucks more expensive then the Ultimate Useless Machine.
- It doesn’t have LEDs lighting up the finger.
- The ‘Useless’ Box is only available only as a kit and requires soldering
ThinkGeek is currently sold out, but we have plenty of Ultimate Machines in stock including pre-soldered versions.
And we are shipping most orders
the next day! (edit: 2 days to process orders now. Lost a day to Friday the 13th accident)

I guess it’s time I get off my butt and make a video for the Ultimate Useless Machine. I’ve put if off much too long.
I should mention that we will be releasing the Wooden Version of Machine.
ThinkGeek, please consider selling the Ultimate Useless Machine, you won’t regret it.
For now, please check out this customer made video of the Ultimate Useless Machine:
