clever idea for competitiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I would suggest that 2 teams have ten hours each to create devices which must move 10,000(?) kilos of cinder blocks from point A to point B over a distance of 15(?) meters with no human assistance past the first meter. - a sort of bridge the gap contest with a twist. Since I don't believe there would any preformed large sections of "conveyor belt" material or large sections of "roller ramps" in the scrapyard, this could lead to some clever designs!
