Simone Giertz is also known as Breaker of Transistors, Mistress of Malfunction, Mother of Terrible Inventions. Simone has been building an army of mediocre machines. Their near 100% failure rate simply makes them some of the most hilarious contraptions seen on YouTube. She is the infamous inventor of the alarm clock that slaps you in the face that broke the internet. Well, almost. A robotic arm that pours your milk and cereal but with the most terrible aim. Videos of her creations have attracted close to half a million YouTube subscribers, racked up tens of millions of views, and earned her the affectionate title of “Queen of Shitty Robots.”

As posted by Wired, she takes us around her San Francisco studio where she builds and tests her pointless inventions.
When I started building things, obviously I was pretty bad at it. You can’t be good at it from the start, and I decided to just embrace that, roll with it, and turn it into something funny.
We love all your inventions, Simone. Full marks on hilariously awful contraptions.
