Button pressed

I'm a tad unclear on whether building a device that lets you press a button in order to press another button is quite the great leap forward it's being painted as here:

I showed this to someone and they said, “So.. you built a button that you press that will press a button? Why not just press the button?” which was a bit infuriating because they clearly missed the whole point. “Don’t you get it? This button BAD, but this button GOOD. Me want to press GOOD button.”

I suspect this makes me part of the problem rather than part of the solution. Or that I'm missing the joke…
