Really FUN Challengesgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
The teams only get 10 hours so everyone must keep that in mind, & I highly doubt that the time limit will be extended. How about a free fall, the teams build a device that protects an object (electronic measuring device) from a drom of 1000+ ft. The device should slow the decent in the least amount of time at the last possible moment, no chutes allowed. What about a gyro-copter? That is pretty straight forward! hope they have insurance! Robert return!
