Continuing Scrapheap Challenge's 'recycling' theme...greenspun.com : LUSENET : Scrapheap : One Thread
...does anyone think it would be a good idea for a challenge to include one whereby contestants have to construct an 'environmentally friendly' device?? It could be a waterwheel to generate electricity, a wind turbine, or some sort of vehicle that runs on a waste product, like chip fat or engine oil.
Just a thought!

You must have missed the "Windmill Coffee Grinders" episode.

In the true spirit of "recycling"....
It might be a good challenge to have the teams build something that could demolish a car. I don't just mean crushing it! I mean something that chops or grinds it up into very small pieces, and then separates them according to size or weight.
Just another crazy idea from my warped mind.

Brian Coleman does lads under a deserted railway bridge then feeds them rats to keep them alive just long enough to do them again.
