ThinkGeek.com has invented something that nobody needs. Click on the picture below to watch a video of what the gadget does -- or rather, doesn't do.

HAHAJK.COM reports:
For $40 you can have a box that only has one function: turn itself off. ThinkGeek's Useless Box Kit arrives as a “pile of parts” you put together yourself (you’ll need your soldering iron), but once you’ve assembled it and snapped in two AA batteries, the device doesn’t want to do anything.

    I have one of those. Mine is 17 years old. Commonly called a normal teenage boy. Uses Pizza instead of AA batteries. But otherwise functionally equivalent.

    For forty dollars I could take myself somewhere nice to eat on Fridays for once instead of ordering Chinese take-out.

    I would buy a useless gadget if I thought it was funny.

    But I would not spend forty dollars on anything just because it's funny.

    Sounds like fun to put together, bu if it doesn't do anything, then it would become a waste of money afterwards...and I'm pretty sure the wooden ones are a lot cheaper.

    It is also not very funny when you buy a gadget, and then realize its useless.

    When I was six, I was given 10 dollars for doing chores so when I went to the mall with my parents, I bought this little plastic boy that if you pull his pants down, water squirts out at you from his little, plastic penis. I thought it was hilarious so I got it. And I still have it after 13 years.

    edit: It's like this, but just a little different looking.
