Design Challenge: BSI’s Designers and Engineers are Nuts

BSI’s designers and engineers are nuts. For fun, they instituted a design challenge to test their ability to solve simple problems in creative ways.  The first competition challenged our employees to defy gravity and slow a ½” hex nut as it fell from an 18’ drop.  Everyone was provided with the same (limited) materials. The first-prize winner employed biomimicry of a maple seed and a potential “enhanced flick”.
