Totally Useless Toy

The TUT, or Totally Useless Toy, is a self opening box. It’s sole purpose is to have  someone switch it on and for the box to

have an arm come out and switch it’s self

off. That’s it! But somehow this has intrigued many minds around the world to a point

where people can’t put them down. The Cybergnomes Robotic team 2013 has developed their own version of this toy

as a fundraising project.
