Video: Man builds machine to press buttons on three cellphones remotely – WHY?

Mok Young Bak decided he needed a robotic device to operate three cellphones remotely. He calls his machine the Caduceus. It has one job only - to press every button on the phone via telepresence. The big question is why? Here's the Wikipedia definition of Cauceus. Search for clues: " The caduceus (in English pronounced /kəˈdjuːsiːəs/, /-ʃəs/, from Greek κηρύκειον kērukeion "herald's staff") is the staff carried by HermesGreek mythology. The same staff was also borne by heralds in general, for example by Iris, the messenger of Hera. It is a short staff entwined by two serpents, sometimes surmounted by wings. In Roman iconography it was often depicted being carried in the left hand of Mercury, the messenger of the gods, guide of the dead and protector of merchants, shepherds, gamblers, liars and thieves." in
