Tesla Model 3 Pickup Truck

Tesla Model 3 Pickup Truck

(PG-13: Language) EV maker Tesla is working on a pickup truck, but Simone Giertz doesn’t have the patience to wait for its release. Instead, she did what any enterprising maker with a massive YouTube following would do – she called in her friends to help carve up a Tesla Model 3 and make it into a ute, dubbed the “Truckla.”

Making Giant Scissors

Making Giant Scissors

(PG-13: Language) “I like making big versions of small things… and I like sharp objects.” Simone Giertz and her pals built a gigantic pair of scissors just because she felt like it. They’re made from sturdy sheet metal, and just sharp enough to cut paper.

The Everyday Calendar

The Everyday Calendar

Maker of shitty robots Simone Giertz is here with a not shitty at all product – a modern wall calendar designed to help her remember to meditate every day, but that can be used as a reminder and tracker for any sort of daily task or habit you want to maintain.

Simon Giertz’s Brain Surgery

Simon Giertz’s Brain Surgery

(PG-13: Language) We love Simone Giertz for all of the wonderfully sh*tty robots she’s given us. But not too long ago, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Well, the good news is that she’s on the mend from the scary procedure to remove it, and is here to share her story.

Head Orbiting Lazy Susan

Head Orbiting Lazy Susan

(PG-13: Language) Simone Giertz’s latest ridiculous design is for a contraption that you set on your shoulders to deliver items to your face as they rotate in orbit around your head. Yes, it’s as stupidly hilarious as it sounds.

Simone Giertz’s Electric Car

Simone Giertz’s Electric Car

“It’s an artisan driving experience.” Simone Giertz now lives in San Francisco, so she went full hipster and bought a Comuta-Car. An electric car from the early ’80s, it’s barely 8 ft long, has a 6 hp motor, a duckbill battery compartment and an ABS plastic body.

Soup-serving Robot

Soup-serving Robot

“The Soup Robot is as if the Beer Robot got the Breakfast Machine really drunk, and then they had a child.” For her latest build, the Queen of Sh*tty Robots Simone Giertz created a machine that’s designed to lift up a bowl of soup, and spoonfeed her. Naturally, it sucks.

The Baby Drone

The Baby Drone

“It’s like a Baby Björn, but with more sharp propellers!” Simone Giertz’s invention for bad parents is right up there with Useless Duck Company’s Baby Bottle Robot in terms of safety, but it sure would be more convenient than pushing a stroller.

Megabot Gets Knives

Megabot Gets Knives

In tribute to the insane knife-wielding robot that Simone Giertz built, the guys behind Megabots’ Mk. III combat robot equipped their killer mech with a pair of its own blade hands, and put Simone behind the controls of the behemoth.

Simone’s Beer Robot

Simone’s Beer Robot

(PG-13: Language) The Queen of sh*tty robots Simone Giertz’s recent build is an attempt to build a low-budget robot that places a cup or glass on the table, then fills it with beer. We blame the human operator, Scott for the large amount of beer that ended up on the table.

Simone Giertz’s Robot Dog

Simone Giertz’s Robot Dog

The queen of sh*tty robots‘ latest creation is very, very, very loosely based on the pet dog of YouTube megastar Jenna Marbles. This is one creation where we can honestly say we could’ve done better, i.e. duct tape a dog plushie onto an RC car.

The Sandwich Robot

The Sandwich Robot

(PG-13: Language) Simone Giertz and her friend use the remote control from her Deal With It Robot to make a robot arm that’s supposed to spread jam on bread. They ended up making a rage quitter. Put peanut butter jar on bread. Efficiency level: robot.

Pokémon GO Helmet

Pokémon GO Helmet

(PG-13: Language) “The Pokémon GO helmet has more degrees of freedom than America!” Simone Giertz’s latest creation isn’t a robot, but it’s her most practical invention yet. It lets you play Pokémon GO on three phones at the same time.

The Deal with It Robot

The Deal with It Robot

Apparently some people have been hate watching Simone Giertz and her intentionally stupid inventions, so she made a robot to address those haters. Now all she needs are the meme sunglasses.

Swedish Actress, Chinese Sitcom

Swedish Actress, Chinese Sitcom

(PG-13: Language) We know her now as the queen of sh*tty robots, but when she was 16 years old Simone Giertz mistakenly agreed to play the American wife of a character in a popular sitcom in China.

Phone Case with Arms

Phone Case with Arms

(PG-13: Language) “I don’t know why I built this.” The khaleesi of useless inventions Simone Giertz attached moving arms to her smartphone’s case. Now she can passively reject calls and her phone can call and crawl for help. See her creation in action at 1:46.

Hair Washing Robot

Hair Washing Robot

(PG-13: Language) The queen of robot underlords Simone Giertz tamed the plastic hand from her brutal wake-up machine and turned it into her personal shampooer. We hope she doesn’t turn her chopping machine into a hairdresser.

The Popcorn Machine

The Popcorn Machine

Inventor Simone Giertz teamed up with Adam Savage to build another one of her silly robotic contraptions – this time, she’s made a hat that automatically feeds her popcorn. They should include one of these as an option with the Oculus Rift.
