Fantastic Contraption

    I found a fun little internet game called "Fantastic Contraption".

    The goal is to get one or more objects from one area of the playing area to another by a contraption that you make from selected components.

    A simple example:

    http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=535704
    (hit Play, then continue and then start.

    The object here is to get both of the small objects in the goal area at the same time.

    You are limited to building you contraption in the gray construction area.

    The challenges get harder as you go up the levels.

    If you register, you can save your contraption and will get a link that you can share with others.

    Here's a couple of examples of contraptions I've created:

    Have some fun, and share your creations.

    There's similar one on miniclip.

    I loved both!

    Wow! That's an incredibly complicated solution. Isn't it easier to just build a long cart that will span the gap.

    Has anyone played: The Incredible Machine?

    But dynamic equilibrium is more fun than static equilibrium!

    Agreed, I'll try and work on a dynamic equilibrium with the erratic triangular ball kicker.
