In real world this is a fun competition where participants create a protective enclosure or other contraption designed to protect the egg from breaking upon impact with the ground.


Participants design little parachutes, boxes, soft padding etc, then put the egg inside and drop it from some standard height, say 20 feet. Winner is the guy whose egg survived the impact with the ground intact.


My challenge to you is to do the same in shared space on TP portal. Our developers can help, for example create a standard breakable egg, standard tower for dropping and put everything in shared space for you guys to experiment with your protective designs. This could be fun. One more thing, could we do first tests by Friday?

Ironically, I used to run an egg lifter competition at school. Kids used TS2 to animate their ideas. This is going back some years but I actually found one this morning (yes, I realise it is not an egg shape);

Hey prodigy, if you come across the dead sea scrolls let me know. I need to clarify a couple of things.:D

Make it 10 feet, and no parachutes. I'm still on TS 6.6 :D
