To Do List Daily: Novelty Automation – Fri 5 Feb

Amazing experiences delivered by automated machine wonders

We first discovered Tim Hunkin’s marvellous tongue in cheek arcade machines in Southwold. We love his cheeky sense of humour and ambitious nature of the machines which include:

  • Is It Art? (an art connoisseur identifies whether your object is in fact art)
  • Alien Probe (‘Investigate the captive alien, but try not to annoy it’),
  • Autofrisk (‘Stand in position and let the rubber gloves give you a thorough frisk.’ )
  • INSTANT WEIGHTLOSS (Get on weight free diet)


I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like free, cheap & offbeat London, especially: cabaret, art, theatre, pop-ups, eating out, quirky films, museums, day trips, social enterprise & much more.
