A collection of projects inspired by “useless machines.”
A useless machine is a device that performs a mostly useless task, such as switching itself off, and performs no other practical function.
One such example of a useless machine is "The Most Useless Machine Ever" - a machine designed to turn itself off as soon as it is turned on - which was inspired by Marvin Minsky and Claude Shannon's "Ultimate Machine.”

Inspiration for the name of the studio stemmed from a conversation with @Novakitty. They made a comment on my version of a useless machine project (which features a robot) saying, "I like that the robot looks angry when it goes to turn it off again hehe. "Thou shalt not press that button!”'
This made me giggle and I agreed, saying they were indeed a feisty little robot. And just like that, Feisty Robots was born :)
Feisty robot / useless machine projects are oddly entertaining and satisfying. So naturally I am very excited to start a collection of such projects!
Know of a project that fits the description of the studio or have one of your own? Share a link to it in the comments and we’ll take a look! :D
