      Chain Reaction Design Tips
      The name of the game here is complexity. The purpose of a Rube Goldberg machine is to seriously over-engineer a process in order to perform a simple task. Make your section as intricate -- and as interesting -- as you can.

      GRAVITY
      Gravity serves as a very useful resource that can help you “store” energy throughout your chain reaction.

      TRANSFER
      A variety of mechanisms can be used to transfer energy.

      MECHANICAL ADVANTAGE
      Simple machines can serve to gain a mechanical advantage in a transfer of energy.
