Introduction: The First Imploding Knex Tower on This Site

This is an imploding tower that you can use over and over again. It has three basic parts. The first slants it about 10 degrees. The second completely falls over and the third falls off of the top. Please rate and leave feedback.

This is the base and the trigger that, when you pull, causes the tower to fall to the ground.

Step 2: The Next Section

This is the main tower which includes the next section.

i built something like this too, it was a side-arm that when the pin was pulled back the front would fall off and the mag would detatch and spurt grey connectors everywhere.

The purpose is to replicate the ideal circumstances and test different theroys that will change the outcome.....Just Kidding. To entertain and watch fall over.

ummm, it doesnt implode...it doesnt even explode...it just falls apart. imploding is probably the worst word you could use "The first falling apart tower on ths site" or better yet, because its not "The falling apart tower"

Yes I know. I just didnt want to call it the tower that falls over. Imploding tower sounds better anyway.
