All the videos I've looked at uses straws, but doesn't wood absorb the impact better? Is there a way to do a hybrid wood/straw setup for maximum absorption? Also, how is my idea? I am gonna make a bedding from yarn and make it fairly tight. Then I'm gonna connect to 4 popsicle sticks, like a bed. Then when the egg hits the ground, it hits the popsicle sticks and the egg bounces on the yarn bedding. There is also rubber bands criss-crossing on the top to stop the egg from bouncing out.
