7. Rube Goldberg machine.
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. Show a video of your contraption working.

Function: Smash a Megabloks creation.
Description: The ball rolls down the ramps and lands in a bucket. The bucket pushes the opposite end of the lift-arm up, knocking over a weighted arm. The arm drops, powering a piston which knocks over the planks. The planks knock the weight off the string, allowing a weight to free fall onto a motor switch. The motor turns on, allowing a cup to rotate, dropping a ball onto a track. The ball hits a tire, which knocks over a plank, landing on a missile trigger, launching the missile into a target, spinning gears, flipping a lift-arm into a second trigger, launching a missile into a weighted lift-arm, knocking the weight off, allowing the lift-arm to drop and smash a megabloks creation.
I think this is the hardest of all the categories. I spent almost a week building, and about two hours filming.
