There isn't a reset button per se -- but there is a separate on/off button inside the lid

I´m really impressed with this new concept. Well, new at least for me. The "Useless machine!" indeed version 2.0 is impressive! making a swirl so fast! and at the end... it wins the match by simply hiding down the switch lever. Where´s the reset button. please tell! :-)

I love it--though I really can't figure out why it had me chuckling and then laughing out loud. That others spend their free time making fancy versions is proof that I'm not alone.

What a staggering coincidence! That such a serendipitous combination of topics, comments, and responses ( speaking of gadgets that function only to turn themselves off, coin tricks, and hands ) should unite so as to bring back the memory of an old bit of childhood-toy-Americana... "The Thing" Coin Bank!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap2tuC-knRs I remember it well... an endless source of amusement!... that is, until it sadly fell prey to my greater preoccupation with taking my toys apart to see how they worked.

Well David, I'm always impressed with the fact that you have so much free time to comment on so many articles on EE Times (grin)
