Minimum Wage Machine

Minimum Wage Machine by artist Blake Fall-Conroy spits out $7.15 per hour in pennies as a person turns the crank. Fall-Conroy writes to Make:

In the future, I see possibility in a lot of these machines hooked into a grid, with people performing basic human labor for money. Perhaps a new form of renewable energy generation? A new kind of supercomputer with thousands of people performing basic calculations at minimum wage "stations" across the world? Who knows?

My eyes must have jumped around the first time I skim read over the title and I somehow read "Minimum Wage War Machine". It must have been one of those weird fill in the blank with what looks right SNAFU moments. I need coffee.
