Useless Box

Summer 2014 - Nathan Reichenberger


The useless box is just "useless".

This fun and simple kit has only one job, to turn itself off.

You will be amazed at how much fun you can have with such a simple device.


This kit was designed to be quick, and simple to build so anyone can build one.


This kit is open source and anyone can use, or modify the design for their own use.

The goal of this kit is to increase the interest in Science and Technology for the younger generations, while still providing hours ( yes hours ) of enjoyment for  everyone.
