A new challenge: hiding "Goal"

Postby calcetin101 on Wed Jan 14, 2009 11:22 am

Hey guys. I've thinking for a new challenge, and I think you'll like it. It consists of hiding with the pink ball :goalc: the word "Goal". For instance, http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=5485196. So, it must stay at goal and hide at least one part of the word, ok?
I'll be completing the chart with your posts. Have a good time :wink:

it's a good idea, and i know it's hard to believe, but it's actually been done already... i'm looking for a link.

i don't, however, have any idea how many were actually solved, so it might not be the worst thing to start a new topic about it.

edit: here it is - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3643&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

oh... I actually also had a similar idea (rather 'middle of goal area' instead of 'on the word Goal'), but I would have had the same 'problem' then :)

I did level 2 though, not 'efficiently' but sorta cool I thought:

yeah, sorry about that... I like to edit my posts if they're still the last one in the topic. But now we have two solutions for that one :)

Around the Bend - not ideal... can certainly be made better, but it's covering the last part of "Goal" anyway... (sometimes all of it, it's not stationary :) )
(I see that one in the other topic is quite a bit more elegant :) but this one is a little bit original I guess :P)

if u wait for less than 5 minutes, pink ball finally falls down.. so, it doesn't hide "Goal"

Around The Bend

Easily adjustable design that lets you put the target just about anywhere you want it.

Hm... aight, here's a version with fewer pieces, fewer powered wheels, faster, and better balance at the end:

Rube Goldberg would be proud of you. This made me chuckle as I watched it.
