useless

(+-) Project text

Elasticity is the ability of a body to resist a distorting influence and return to it’s original form.

First conceived by the italian designer Bruno Munari, 'useless machines' are devices with a function, but no direct intention. The most famous devices of this kind are those that can be set into motion by an on-switch, but the following sequence of events leads to flipping the switch back to it’s original off-position, without additional input.
