In the 1940s, a retired clockmaker named Lawrence Wahlstrom found a complex arrangement of gears and began work on what would become the precursor to today’s useless machines. Lawrence’s Do Nothing Machine uses three electric motors and over 700 moving parts to achieve absolutely nothing.

You can learn more about the Do Nothing Machine at the Craftsmanship Museum’s website or see it in person at the museum itself in Carlsbad, California.
