My Project: Design and build a prototype portable 'laddervator'.
What's a laddervator? Good question! A laddervator is a device that attaches to a standard aluminum ladder that transports items up and down. They are typically used to get heavy roofing suppliers to a roof without the need for a crane (or a lot of manual work).
Some project considerations:
- Inexpensive (I want to keep the cost below $100)
- Portable (as I want to easily take it to the Maker's Fair)
- Safe (nothing drops on my head!)
- Strong (I would like the laddervator to be able to lift at least 200lbs)
