Thanks, Tomasz, yes, very nice, I can understand why you might find this device both useful and attractive.

I am less creative than Tomasz, so, I prefer this device:
Toi aussi achete une femme

The guy does resemble vid, don't you think so?

The dispensation of toilet paper was especially clever, I thought.

I once read that the famous mathematician Claude Shannon had a similiar self-closing box:

Quote:

The ``Ultimate Machine,'' based on an idea of Mervin Minsky, was built in the early fifties. The operation and spirit were well described by Arthur C. Clarke in Voice Across the Sea: ``Nothing could be simpler. It is merely a small wooden casket, the size and shape of a cigar box, with a single switch on one face. When you throw the switch, there is an angry, purposeful buzzing. The lid slowly rises, and from beneath it emerges a hand. The hand reaches down, turns the switch off and retreats into the box.

Very interesting. Wonder if this kind of thing is on sale? Laughing

My grandmother had a small wind-up machine which worked like that. I believe it was a penny bank: the penny would push down on a button, and then a hand would take the penny - turning off the machine when the button raised.

Very nice Tomasz, even the schematic and code are included.
Unfortunately, my knowledge on electricity is pretty low...

Borsuc, 99 € is a hoax of course, i know what i'm talking about! Once you own one of those femmes, she will squander your money pretty fast. Then you have a reason to work and raise money; you are forced too as long as you don't want to get rid of the femme. And if you got rid of her you still have to pay for her. So, just don't start!
