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! There's no limit on amount of LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT sensors, motors, NXT programmable bricks, HiTechnic sensors, or Bluetooth communication you can use on your Crazy Contraption robot.  Although this Contest is done, we do not know the winners. We will post them as soon as we find out. Right idkwhoyouare? Yes (idkwhoyouare)

The winners are: han-solo-ninja with his Music Maker; MySnailEatsPizza with his Circular Reasoning 2 Part 2; nxtstep101 with "The Circulator"; NXTein1996 with The Crazy Colorful Contraption. Thank you for reading this. (I didn't win >:(   )
