This box is not useless at all, I could spend hours with it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=31&v=aqAUmgE3WyM

Maybe a nice gadget for when you have an act that may involve turning a switch to be able to continue the effect.

JimBeta,

It's cute and funny, but I'm not sure I get how it would work in a magic routine. If the act involves a spectator turning a switch to be able to continue the effect, according to this "useless box," the magic wouldn't happen until the batteries died.

What effect did you have in mind?

That reminds me of a bank they used to sell, based on the Addams Family. Putting a coin in the slot would activate the box, "Thing's" hand would come out and grab the coin. The box would shut off and Thing's hand would shoot back into the box, with your coin!

They need to make a version that you can put a delay on it, just to confuse people.

If you know how to move an arm you also know how to wait ;)

JimBeta ...
thanks for sharing.

At least you won't forget to turn it off ... sigh

With a DIY version you can maybe tweak it to add a delay.
I always have a painted version of this one with me https://www.coolgift.com/en/Useless-Box
