The ice bucket traps experiment

Updated: Jul 29, 2019

A funny little project that tested my trap making


After reluctantly agreeing to do the ice bucket challenge I thought I would find an alternative way of soaking myself, So set up a series of traps to make a mini Rude Goldberg machine to do the deed for me....


A fun day in the woods making traps and raising awareness of a good cause....



The traps...


The traps are triggered by the log rolling down the ramp and falling on a pressure release pad. then triggered consecutively by the previous trap. you may struggle to see them all as it happens so quickly they are....


1 - Pressure release

2 - Sprung snare

3 - deadfall

4 - Boar spear

5 - Counterbalance
