knex vaccum Answered

Hey I've been wondering on making something to organize and clean my knex all over the floor without picking everything up and crawling on my knees. I have a idea about a vaccum but i'm not sure if it might even work. I was thinking on making a turning thing that scoops up knex without all that dust since I have allergies... sadly.

So it is possible to make a vaccum out of knex, it would need similar workings to that of an actual vaccum but minus the suction of course. such as to axils spinning outwards and then upand inwards to pick up pieces. and have mutiple of those to send the pieces into a container that could be attached to the knex vaccum. and then unattach that container to empty it out and/or sort the pieces.
i have not made one myself but based on my experience with knex (since i was in elem,entary school. that is what i could come up with for a knex vaccum. i might try to invent one. and i could make it my first post on instructables.

If you made the structure of a scooper, and then wrapped it with duct tape, then it would effectively work as a dust shovel.
You could make that, and then add a grabber mechanism to it so that it
you could operate it without bending down, or getting close to the dust.

A lego picker upper would work but I don't know if you could make it out of knex.

a vaccum made out of pure knex would be impossible, knex has a ton of holes in it, and knex doesnt make a fan.
