Food fling! LVL1 presenting 'Make food, not war,' 24 hours of wacky hacking competition
Next Saturday, Oct. 2o into Sunday, Oct. 21, pit your building skills against nine teams attempting to assemble the finest food-flinging machines in the world.
From the news release:
Your challenge is to build a machine in 24 hours (or less) that can fling the tastiest foodstuff the longest distance with the most style. Teams can bring in any supplies they want (up to $150 worth– We will be asking for receipts at the door!), but you can’t put anything together until the start of the competition. From then on out, it’s a free-for-all to build your contraption using the supplies you’ve brought in alongside the supplies at the LVL1 hackerspace.
Each ticket is $35 per team, with fees used to cover pizza and energy drinks. You can order tickets here.
Each team should be named before you show up.
At the end of the competition, teams will judge each other in the following categories:
Taste: How delicious is it, after being flung?
Distance: How far did you fling it?
Ingenuity: How well-built was your flinger? How crazy?
Appearance: Is your food recognizable on the other end?
Scores in each category will be averaged, and the top three teams will receive their assorted glory.
$150 budget, not counting parts from the boneyard at LVL1
Must be built in 24 hours (nothing preassembled!)
Team size is unlimited (in either direction), but 3 to 6 people is recommended
