Hello all! My third entry to the 2014 MA! My category is:
Rube Goldberg machine.
This one has become a fan favorite over the years while also being one of the more difficult categories to master. Create a working contraption overcomplicating a simple task. Think of Rube Goldberg's crazy contraptions, the game Mouse Trap, or the Lego Great Ball Contraption. While it is NOT required to show a video of your contraption working, it would REALLY help if you did. If you are unable to provide a video you MUST include as many pictures as possible showing your creation working at every stage.
So here it is!
A bit on the simple side but I do like the design. Having a few more steps (hitting extra things and/or activating more mechanisms and so on) would have really upped your score. It was a great start but just didn't quite "finish" for me. Score of 2. ~Chris.
Not bad. Although, a few more steps before the gum was dispensed, and maybe some things to enhance the look, as well as a white background for the video might have helped. ;) Adding a theme would have been superb. But still, nice job. And I am happy to know that I am not the only one on the team with mindstorms. :D
