After millennia of civilisation, humans still suffer from a multitude of problems due to their inability to cope with themselves, the other(s) and society in general. Since the issues have proved to be too complex for human brains to remedy, Tim Buelens and Bart Ramakers invented and created a number of machines that solve the most important shortcomings of the human condition. Take for instance the Oblivion Generator™, a great step ahead for modern politicians: it allows them to can and archive their dirty affairs. The Pubersentimat™ enables you to relive your youth dreams, if you have the SentiCard™ that is. Don't know what principles to apply after hearing the news of the day? In the Princip-O-thek™ you can hire new principles per week or per month according to the challenges of the moment and bring them back when they don't work for you anymore. The Oracolodelphinario™ formulates the essential questions for you, so you don't have to loose time tinkering and pondering about that. The EternalYouthSerumBrewery™ exactly does what it's name says it does. The Escarbot™ allows you to forget about real life completely; the Conformat™ transforms scum to decent citizens; and the Hairdresser on Fire™... well, the Hairdresser on Fire™ cuts your hair automatically, or chops your head off, depends on the reliability of this very first prototype. In the pipeline: the indispensable NationalismGenerator. Still a few more Automats to be invented, but don't worry: everything will be fine in the end!
