Simone Giertz, the 25-year-old Swedish inventor who lives on a houseboat in Stockholm, is called ‘the queen of shitty robots.’ She has attracted thousands of followers with her quirky contraptions for eating cereal or applying lipstick. You’ll smile with each video.

She’s a natural comedian and the daughter Caroline Giertz, novelist and TV host. Every 10 days (or so) she provides a new YouTube video of the misuse of robots. An alarm clock, breakfast cereal maker, vegetable chopper, lipstick applier and so forth, are her recent inventions.

You can watch some of her videos below, or visit her YouTube channel.

Enjoy.
