CONTEST: Bucky Blindfolded

  • April 15, 2011

It’s contest time again… this time though, you’re going to have to do it with your eyes closed.


That’s right, we want you to make a video of your trying to make something blindfolded! It doesn’t matter what, if anything, you actually make, all you need is a video of your attempt to enter.


Here’s how it works:

1 – Start by Clicking Here to see a video of Thomas McGinniss breaking the world record for The Fastest Time To Make a Cube Out of Buckyballs while blindfolded.


2 – Put on a blindfold, Buckyballs in hand, and point a video camera at yourself.


3 – Do your best to make something. Anything. NOTE: You don’t actually have to make ANYTHING to be entered to win this contest. All you have to do is make a video of your trying to make something while blindfolded.


4 – Post the video on the wall of our Facebook page by 11:59PM EST, Sunday April 17th and you’ll automatically be entered to win a a free set. We’ll choose the winners (two of ‘em) at random on Monday, but if anyone thinks they’ve beaten Thomas’ time, please submit it to the URDB as well. You might just have set a new world record! How fun is that?



Now for the fine print:


There really is no fine print, but if there had to be it would look something like this…

– You are free to enter as many times as you like!

– Two people will win free sets!

– Winner selection will be random. But, if you set a new World Record for Fastest Time to Make a Cube While Blindfolded (and submit it to the URDB) you could also wind-up in the history books. How fun is that?
