Remember the other day I said that Altoids tins are the modern equivalent of Christ’s toenails? These projects are Christ’s toenails caked with solder, wrapped in duct tape and decorated with pointless little screws.
So, a puzzle: Match the 10 ugly Altoids-tin projects in the pictures below with their ostensible functions!
1) A doorbell
2) A holiday decoration
3) A tripwire
4) A belt buckle (on a duct tape belt)
5) A sandbox
6) A box to put things in
7) A decorative shadowbox
8) A guitar
9) A paddleboat
Bonus points if you can combine all 10 to make a perpetual-motion machine.
