Item 197: VIDEO. Wheelchairs are great for getting around, but when the passenger has nowhere to go, there's room for improvement, especially on hot days. Create a mechanism whereby when the passenger in a wheelchair spins the rear wheels, the chair goes nowhere, but the rotation of the wheels powers an overhead fan that cools the passenger. Demonstrate its use.

Team MonkeyBrigade

Comment: Salt bread (no yeast) makes for a heavy yet not puffy Princess :)



Item 13: VIDEO. (Video may be up to 20 seconds) Design and build a voice recognition device or robot stationed next to a toilet that flushes it when prompted by the voice command, "Crowley." We must see you speak for 10 seconds prior to saying "Crowley" (you can say whatever you wish for this 10 seconds) but only see the flushing when "Crowley" is uttered. We must see the speaker's face, the flushing mechanism and the toilet bowl in the video framing the entire time.
