How to drop an egg from a window and prevent it from crashing
I think you might find this exercise fun and at the same time original ideas are needed!
Thanks In advance!!
I'm studying design and this exercise has become a classic at my school. Since 10 years ago students have tried to reach the objective but also to develop an original and creative solution.
The exercise is to develop a kind of device in order to be able to drop an egg from a window in the first floor and land it safely on the ground at a distance that has to be less than 3 cm from it. Plain Parachutes and slides are forbidden as they are too obvious unless they have a distinctive aspect and also you can`t wrap the egg in something soft (like a pillow) and drop it. Important things to take notice are:
-The person has to loose all contact with the egg, for example you canÂ´t hold a fishing rod with an egg on the end of the line and slowly get it down, but if somehow the fishing rod would do that by itself it would be ok.
-It must be a raw chicken egg
Thanks!! I will try to answer any questions!
