Of course Higgs didn’t create this unwieldy gadget for its efficiency. He sees it more as a piece of social commentary. He told The Drinks Business that the “completely excessive” work is a “statement on the over industrialized society we live in with all the bells and whistles.”
Since its creation, Higgs has sold multiple replicas of the device and it has appeared on television shows like Stephen Fry’s Gadget Man.
Altogether, the finished product weighs about half a ton and is expected to sell for between 15,000 and 25,000 GBP (about $19,500 to $32,500 USD).
