  • Fantastic Contraptions



    This has absolutely nothing to do with organs, but I believe our decidedly clever members here might enjoy the following puzzle website:</p>

    fantasticcontraption.com</p>

    The idea is to move a given item from the workspace to the goal by creating a contraption using directional motors, free wheels, and two types of structural struts.  The software is I believe flash-based, and is convincingly accurate about the physics of the machines you create, although it could use a good optimization for folks with slower machines - the more parts the slower it gets.  (I have a 1.2 ghz IBook with 1.25 gigs of RAM and it's fine, but a PIII450 just won't cut it, except maybe with lots of RAM).</p>

    So, if you're looking to spend lots of time you don't have on a shameless online addiction, this site is for you!  (C:</p>

    Oops, I should have heeded that warning. (I say that after emerging hours later, bleary-eyed)... [^o)]</P>

      It is LOADS of fun, even on my slow machine. Maybe we need a fantastic contraptions area on this forum. How far did you get, SB32?

        I think I got about 8 or 9 levels in, but then I had to reboot my computer (I'm also troubleshooting some computer issues).

              I'm stumped at level 15.[:(] I will let you discover a solution to level 14 on your own. [:D] Most of my solutions eventually worked with tweaking, although they were not elegant or pretty.

                I'm stuck on the "tube" puzzle at the moment - everything I have made thus far just falls out the bottom!  (C:</p>

                  Contraption Ethics?



                  Incidentally, I like how the ability to view other peoples' contraptions is withheld for each level until you achieve it.  In that spirit, I suppose that we should be keeping our contraptions to ourselves for the moment?  (C:</p>

                    Wow, this game has really taken off in popularity. I first came across about a month ago in another forum (non music) that I frequent and there was no mention of it elsewhere, and now its on pretty much all the forums I visit including this one.</P>

                      I can't figure out a solution to level eleven, I got twelve, because I went ahead, but 11, I'm just stumped. My solutions are very unlike manny of the othrers i've seen, where others build ramps for the thing, I build a big friggin' machine, along the lines of the NASA crawlers
