    Nursery Rhyme Chain Reaction
    Added: Wednesday, August 18th, 2004
    What kind of idea: half-baked

I wanted to make a chain reaction machine that told a story. I chose a nursery rhyme - Pop Goes the Weasel - and then made a contraption that acts out the story in the rhyme. It starts when I press a button, which makes the cup on the top - decorated with a monkey and a weasel- spin. When the cup stops spinning, a marble drops, trips a sensor, and makes the weasel you see on the right "pop" up.
