Simone Giertz

Simone Luna Louise S√∂derlund Giertz is a Swedish inventor, maker, robotics enthusiast, TV host, and professional YouTuber. She studied engineering physics in college but dropped out after a year. She started creating “useless” inventions after studying at Hyper Island in Stockholm, where she was inspired by the local open-source hardware community. Giertz’s interest in electronics began in 2013; she made a toothbrush helmet for a children’s show pilot episode on electronics, which was uploaded to YouTube after not being picked up, starting her YouTube career.

Giertz brands herself as “the queen of shitty robots” and runs a YouTube channel where she employs deadpan humor to demonstrate mechanical robots of her own creation to automate everyday tasks; despite working from a purely mechanical standpoint, they often fall short of practical usefulness, for comic effect.
