When you want to sleep in during a cold winter morning - but the dog needs to get out of its crate - you can turn to Les Kelly's Easy Out Gadget. Click a controller and the dog's door opens while you get a few more zzz's.
The controller works from many floors away. Once you push the button, the door pops open and out comes pooch flying up to greet you - or run out the doggy door. The build instructions are relatively easy and this gadget requires few parts.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
