About Colin Northway

I originally released Fantastic Contraption way back in 2008 and it got BIG.

Now there are over 12 MILLION saved contraptions which take up nearly 300gig of memory. All of these designs are saved on a server and are instantly available for anyone in the world to look at and modify.

Think of the amount of time, effort, and ingenuity all these contraptions represent. All the people around the world sitting in their living rooms and kitchens, parents with their kids, people making goofy things at parties. People sitting down and working their brains to make something ingenious.

Fantastic Contraption didn't make me a millionaire but I want to keep all this alive. I don't want to delete anything, I want all that ingenuity to stay in the world. For that, I could use some help.

Server costs are about 50$ a month. I'm covering those costs myself but if you want to help I'd be grateful. Lets keep this ocean of human creativity from freezing over!

Any money we raise in excess of server costs will go to the community. It will help run the fan forums and do anything else the community wants to do with it. Like purchase prizes for contests.
