The New Knex Innovationists Tournament - T.N.K.I.T (Round 3) Answered

Thanks to I_Am_Canadian for the contest round idea.
You have to build something practical!
Like a grabber for your gramps, or a K'nex keyboard maybe?
Or a soda delivery cart?
Something you would use everyday.
Last day for entry acceptance is 30 Nov. 2009.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ratings will be judged upon these categories:

- Practicality
300/900 points.
How good is it to use in your everyday life?
Do you / would you use it often?

- Sturdyness
300/900 points.
This speaks for itself, if you use it often, it has to be sturdy.

- Extras
300/900 points.
By the normal use of your entry, can it do something else too?
You start with 100 points on this.
Every added function is worth 50 points.

Good luck, my fellow K'nexers!

Link to round 4: (NO ROUND YET POSSIBLE BECAUSE THIS ROUND IS STILL GOING).

UPDATE:
I'm waiting for Oblivitus and I_Am_Canadian for their grade lists of the entries.
Oblivitus is wide awake, but i think I_A_C forgot so i sent him a message.
In the meantime, go do something else than stare at a screen.

Yes he sent it, no it wasn't judged correctly.
At the extras category he just put up numbers, though there is a rule on that category, 50 p. per extra.
So sorry but you have to wait a bit more.
I could put up my score list if everyone would like that.
And Oblivitus only sent me one score list, about your solar clock.

So you'll sell on ebay?  I COULD convince my mom that 80 dollars for 3,000 parts is a steal seeing how the Sawblade Thirll Ride had 2000 parts and some of that was mini knex.

He can split it up, give it to the person who has less knex, or give it to the person who is more "worthy" of it.
