What task should I do?

For my physics simple, well complex, machine project, I have to have it do some sort of a task, like turn on a lamp switch or raise a flag, ect, at the end. Any ideas? Thanks.

have it be the most complicated way to do a simple simple task
like 14 different actions just to complete a circuit for a light bulb to come on
oh, and it has to have a boot on a stick

Make a machine that will organize my desk. That will surpass the complexity threshold.
