This maker took these simple pieces.. you won’t believe what he did with them

UselessKit

OK, I’ll admit that the Useless Machine (a.k.a Useless Box) makes me laugh every time I see it. A while back we decided to create our own version. Being huge supporters of the Maker movement we decided to write an instructable and give away our designs for our Useless Machine. That’s right… with just a few commonly available parts you can build 1, or 100, of these unique, fun, addictive toys. Check out what you can build yourself with just a few easily available parts.

Now, we know that a lot of folks don’t have access to a laser cutter yet. We hope there are more and more available at maker spaces across the country but, for now, we decided to offer the item as a kit so that access to the cutter does not hold anyone up from building their own. We hope you take the time to check out the instructable and build your own. You can always get the kit directly from us if you don’t yet have access to the cutter. We hope you will build your own and share it with us. We’d love to see what you make!

 

 

A lazy Saturday… for some

Dogs relaxing at Orange Kat HQ

While the name of the company may be Orange Kat, we love our dogs, too. Jack and Diane love to hang out with us in the shop. They have us trained pretty well. We keep an extra stash of cookies close at hand when they need a treat. Our treat is knowing that our faithful pups are nearby and keeping us company.
