The Never-ending Slinky Machine

Whether your favorite part of Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls was this scene, or you’re simply looking for some NASA-grade entertainment to distract yourself at the office, the Never Ending Slinky Machine should get you doing flips. 

Essentially a sexily-encased desktop escalator, the gizmo keeps the iconic 70-year-old metal toy flipping and flopping in perpetuity for as long as it’s turned on (and is conveniently powered via USB). 

And, while you may feel otherwise, it wasn’t developed simply for amusement, but rather in the words of its inventors: “to aid the creative thinkers and the entrepreneurs of the world.” And if that’s what we get to call ourselves for wanting one, that’s totally fine with us.

Joe McGauley is a senior editor at Supercompressor and once cut himself pretty severely with a Slinky.
