Fancy making a Useless Can?

I am never quite sure what to make of Kickstarter, the web site where people canvass for financial backing for their projects, but while browsing my eye was caught by the Useless Can – DIY Kit for Everyone by InnoTechnix.


The Useless Can turns up as a kit of parts which you assemble using everyday tools and without needing to solder.

Once put together you have a smart can with a toggle switch on the top. Switch your Useless Can on by flicking the switch and it jumps into action, from the mechanism inside a lever emerges through the top of the can an pushes the switch back into the off position. What could be more useless than that?

The guys behind the Useless Can have even put together a web site to promote their kit.
