Besiege collision engine

The Hinge Engine, or Collision Engine, is a very simple and effective method of generating torque from as little as a single Steering Hinge piece, though most commonly it is made out of an even number of matching, opposed Steering Hinges mounted on an axis. It exploits a physics glitch where the rotating part of the hinge, colliding with other blocks of your machine, will undergo a one-way collision reaction forcing it to turn in the opposite direction.

Uses Edit

The Hinge engine is simple, light-weight, fast and reversible, and its output can be controlled by finely increasing or decreasing the angle of its hinges, making it very suitable for light aircraft or rotating machinery.
