Applause Machine lets you fell the love of the (imaginary) audience

Sometimes, you just need a little recognition for your hard work. And a round of applause is a great way to get said recognition. But unless you're an actor or a musician or a performer of some kind, applause isn't something you get all too often. Enter the Applause Machine.

The Applause Machine is a limited edition piece of art that claps for you at the push of a button. Running on 2 AAA batteries, it's the perfect way for you to feel appreciated even when you're sitting by yourself at your computer. For $283, it's a bit steep, but can you really put a price on your own feelings of self-worth?
