Column Erector

1st Prize — Engineering

by Adrian Drake

Column Erector website
Adrian Drake's Column Erector is a marvelous entry in the Engineering category because it does what it claims. See Adrian's website to understand how it works.

It is not known to have existed in classical times. If you want to speculate whether it could have, you might consider the inventions documented by Heron and other ancient engineers.

For past efforts in the Engineering category, see the Ship-Shaker of Archimedes in the 1998 contest.
