Giant music box/pipe organgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I would like to see what kind of twisted machine would spout forth from the minds and hands of the contestants in ten hours that could play a simple tune or be played by the contestants using a pre-chosen tune. I am so enchanted by just the thought of seeing 2 such machines dueling it out that I haven't figured a way to determine the winner. Any suggestions?

This is what we did for our simple machine explanation for our application.
We built a giant music box that plays Pop Goes the Weasel on pipes.

Tim, I think this sounds like it has alot of potential! What about a steam powered boat with a calliope on it! This way you have your music challenge and a race to determine a winner. I am going to try this in the back yard, but the calliope will have to be air powered as it will be mounted on the (not yet finished) hovercraft.
