Many robots are designed to do simple tasks in an efficient way to make our lives easier. But what if robotic machines did simple tasks in an over-complicated way? That’s what we’re asking you to explore in this NXT building challenge. We want you to design a LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Crazy Contraption to perform a simple job like turning a page or clicking a LEGO brick, but in the most creatively complicated way you can imagine. Yes we’re inspired by the work of Rube Goldberg for this one!
