Hello everyone! What I have here is a small project that I worked on for a few weeks: a leave me alone box! I've seen lots of these boxes around on the internet, so I decided to build one out of Knex. :-) It is purely mechanical and uses things like an arm, crank, and a more compact version of the motor switch system I invented in my skeeball machine.
Note: If you use the mechanism anywhere else, please give me credit.
These are the pieces I used to build the leave me alone box. The box uses a lot of pieces, so if you don't have enough you could make it with blue/yellow rods instead of green/white rods. The pieces below are listed with their classic-colored names. Counting is so much fun!
