Trevor's Unchained Reaction

I'm doing three things in this blog entry I also don't normally do.  I rarely post on Saturdays. I'm attempting to include a video for the first time (fingers crossed that it works).  And, I'm showing off someone else's creativity that had nothing to do with me.

Usually when I blog about something Trevor has made, I either made my own version along with him or, at the very least, I was with him when he made it.  Earlier this week, Trevor was in the garage playing while Steve was working on a project.  I was indoors.  I had no idea what was going on until Trevor told me to come outside and to bring my camera.

This is what I found:

Obviously, this isn't 100% Trevor's work.  Steve had to help Trevor hang the pulley and helped tie things together.  But the basic idea is Trevor's. He is absolutely obsessed with anything having to do with chain reactions and/or mazes.  (He had a maze-themed birthday party when he turned 4.)  Ever since Unchained Reactions aired, he has been making his own unchained reactions out of whatever he can find.

This kind of thing is about as far out of my comfort zone as possible.  I am not mechanically inclined and would never think to build a chain reaction.  Steve is very talented in that area, and it is obvious that Trevor shares his talent and interest.
