Michael sent in his “LeaveMeAloneBox” that is inspired from an article written by Claude Shannon.

  1. This is awesome! I could play this thing for ever lmao. What would be awesome is if he put a “that was easy” or “leave me alone” voice clip on it!

    Things like this always amuse me…

  2. I kind of remember that too….for some reason I want to say it was a toy tied in with the Adams Family?


    Audio would be a nice addition.

    Good find! I remember it being black & red….but I guess I was wrong about the whole Adams Family thing.
