    YOU DIDN'T MAKE AN INSTRUCTABLE JUST A VIDEO OF SOMETHING YOU DID NOW I WANT TO BUILD ONE BUT CANT BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T POST INSTRUCTIONS I LOVE THE IDEA I JUST THINK YOU SHOULD MAKE ACTUAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE WHOLE BUILD INSTEAD OF JUST THE REASON YOU DID IT AND THE END RESULT

    sorry, i only started writing instructables on my more recent Stupid Inventions
    All this is really is a remote controlled car on an angle, with a track around the wheels... oh and a piece of cardboard at the beginning and end to keep the slinky on the track hope that helps!

    a little tweaking, and that could actually be pretty sweet.

    lol, its not sweet as is? im thinking of adding a rubber band along the side to keep the slinky from going over the side, but when properly balanced it can go for about a minute without falling off....

    It is, it is. A little tweaking could make it truly automatic and practically infinite. Would be a great curiosity and conversation catcher to have in the house.

    Good point. I was thinking of just taping down the remote and maybe putting the rubber band to make it automatic, but now the device is more interactive because you have to control the speed to keep it going without falling off... I was in a rush to finish this before Spring Break ends, perhaps ill tweak or rebuild a more autonomous model in the Summer....
