Quiet Time Machine

by Tom Balzamo

Published on January 23, 2015

I thought up this contraption while I had a migraine earlier this week. It's a game where every three "strikes" I get a little bit more of my kids candy. A strike is when they're too loud. If they're nice and quiet they get to keep all of it. You can turn it on with any remote and change the sensitivity to louder or softer. You can even change how long the hoppers are open if you want to up the ante a bit. We had a lot of fun with it!
