I first caught a glimpse of this crazy machine in an ad for an electricity company a few years ago (even blogged about the ad here).  I didn't know what the machine was then but have since come across it a few times  - the solar powered Do-Nothing Machine, created by none other than Ray and Charles Eames. 

Charles Eames apparently stated, "It is not supposed to do. It is supposed to be. Its whole function is in its being."

Its being is so pretty it makes me happy.


  1. What a fun thing to design! I wonder if it was originally meant for children and was part of their toy design.

  2. I want that thing so bad!! wow!! that thing is so sweet and pointless I just need to have it! :D might be a bad distraction for me but oh well :P

  3. That machine is ALL KINDS of beautiful! Wrap it up, I'll take it!

  4. So cool! I wish I had one in my yard!
