Introduction: How to Vote for Team Instructables for the Red Bull Creation Challenge.

I recently had the honor of participating in the Red Bull Creation project with Team Instructables. Voting opens July 25th, and we need you to help us win! We developed a game called Psycho Scooter Scramble, and it went a little something like this.

Psycho Scooter Scramble: the blind-driving electric wheelchair game

Psycho Scooter Scramble is a game for four: two riders and two pilots. The trusting rider is strapped into an electric wheelchair, placing their life in the hands of a blindfolded pilot. The pilot controls the rider's careening wheelchair from the sidelines based on shouted headset commands from the rider.

The basic mechanic is simple: players must drive across the court to get a ball from a stand, then drive back across to put the ball in a hoop. This action is repeated until all four balls have been scored or the timer runs out. However, since there is an inevitable disconnect between the pilots’ steering and their teammates’ intentions, wheelchairs zigzag across the court at high speeds, colliding with each other, ball stands, the scoreboard, and everything else, making full use of the custom steel bumpers and creating hilarious mayhem for the benefit of onlookers and players alike.

Step 1: Go to the Red Bull Site

Go to the Team Instructables page on the Red Bull Creation Site.

holly ma'lowlee that is cool and funny. ....... next have 4 people on the court at once instead of two.... if each team had a goalie being run by another blindfolded person.... or even run by a second joy-stick run by the same blindfolded person; so each pilot would be running two riders instead of just one .... just a thought.

I voted! The game your team created is quite inventive - very resourceful of you to grab those wheelschairs in the first 12 hours - good luck!
