Team: The Maersk Blues
Category: 1. Alternate Mode of Transport.
We have all seen trains, bikes, cars, boats and planes! What mode of transport haven't we seen? Does it use cosmic power? Does it relocate you along radio waves? Show us your idea for a mode of transport. It must include a minifig but the build can be set in any time period.
Hello! My name is Bleau Maersk, and I will be showing you something very special today: The Photo Atomic Proton Ungulatory Accelerator Nitrogen Enveloper Wave Graph Ultrasonic Inertia Nuclear Energy Aeromodule, or PAPUA NEW GUINEA for short (although most of us at the lab just call it the PNG). What does it do exactly? Example:
Most of you have observed that if a point, X distance away from the center of a circle A, is stationary, it looks just like a point should. But if the circle is spinning, the point appears to become a circle with radius X and center A. Until recently, people believed that this effect was merely an optical illusion, but in fact, this was an infinitely complex law of physics at work. This law, dubbed "Franko's Law", is represented by the equation x+2=4. Anyway, the PNG is comprised of two parts, the transmitter node and the receiver node. Basically, the transmitter node transmits (hence the name) ultra-complex forces between it and the receiver node, causing the receiver node to be present on all points of the given circle at the same time, while still being one entity.
By this point, you're probably wondering what the practical applications of the PNG are, especially since you taxpayers contributed most of the 16-trillion dollars it took to build this baby. *cough* So...
Suppose in a military campaign, a valuable asset needs to be protected, but there simply aren't enough soldiers to efficiently defend it. Just call in the PNG (the PNG is equipped with rockets), park it next to the asset, and strap the receiver node (tightly) to a soldier's back. Once the transmitter node is initiated, the soldier suddenly becomes present on all points of the given circle (he is free to move forward or back. In doing so, the radius of the circle increases or decreases).
Alright, that about wraps it up. Oh wait, photos you say?
Working shock absorbers.
Yes, that lights up via a light brick.
Lucky Hank has kindly agreed to wear the receiver node for us.
Warning - The PNG may cause severe cases of dizziness.
Do you understand any of that, or were you just blowing smoke? It must have been fun to figure out how to build so many complicated-looking devices - yet they all seem to make sense....sort of. Anyway, I'm rounding up to a 5 here, since I liked it so much. I think. ;)
