YouTube Tuesday – My Useless Machine

Here is a video of my ‘Useless Machine’ that I made last year. I threw together after a friend showed me another video of a useless machine.

It is based on these instructions, but I went with the simple version that did not use a 555 timer. I have used an RC servo that was hacked for continuous rotation, an ON-ON DPDT switch and a micro switch. The case is made up of a couple of small ABS jiffy boxes from the electronics store and I cut the upper one in half (poorly) to make the lids. I am only using 2 AA batteries to drive it. Total cost was under AU$20 for the purchased parts (servo, boxes, and switches) and the rest of the stuff required was scavenged from around the house/hobby box.

Oh, and Dremels are rad.
