The Egglift is a Lego appliance to cook soft-boiled eggs powered by an RCX.
About this creation
The Egglift is a Lego appliance to cook soft-boiled eggs powered by an RCX.

Description:

The Egglift is mainly composed of four elements:

1. A metallic perforated non-Lego® basket where you lay the eggs. The basket, made of metallic wires, is fairly small and can contain 2 eggs maximum.
2. A winch that contain a motor to pull up or down the basket through a string and also a light sensor to detect the position of the basket. (in red)
3. A Lego® RCX to pilot the basket through the winch and a 180 seconds temporization (adjustable). (in yellow-grey)
4. Finally, a Lego® structure where the three above elements are graft. (in blue)

Instructions of operation:

* Fill up a pan with water, and place over a cook top.
* Place the Egglift (with its basket in up position) above the pan, in a way that when the basket is in down position, it fully goes in the pan.
* Place one or two eggs into the basket.
* Turn on the cook top.
* Push the button “Run” of the RCX.

That’s all for the human operations: the Egglift will automatically detect when the water reached its boiling point. The basket will then automatically drop down until it is fully submerged in the boiling water. After three minutes, the basket is automatically pulled up and an alarm rings, warning you the boiled eggs are ready. Just pick them up and enjoy!
