It's annoying. And yet. I can see how it would be impossible to stop flipping those toggle switches. There's a meditative quality to it. The machine is an advanced version of the Most Useless Machine, which came out about three years ago and had just one switch. Child's play compared to this one.
In this version, there are eight switches. And while it seems that the human should be able to outsmart such a simple machine, a broken Canon 850i printer, in fact, the human succumbs to the idiotic pleasure of switch-flipping in much the same way it does to popping bubble wrap.
If you want to build one of these machines yourself and go insane, you can get the plans here.
