Human hamster wheel generates electricity

Earlier this year we decided to by a family pass that gets us unlimited access to 3 different museums in our city. We barely go since they like to charge for parking and I won’t deny being cheap with planning a wedding. However a couple months ago we went and visited the Canada Science and Technology Musuem. We came across this human hamster wheel that generates electricity and had fun all taking turns on it. Sadly if you all were depending on me to get electricity you would be out of luck.

  1. No way – They seem to be coming up with all kinds of interesting ways to make electricity these days. I suppose it’s a good thing, right?

  2. I bet the kids thought it was hilarious to watch Mom do that! It’s too bad the parking prices deter you from visiting.

  3. OMG!! How cool is that!! I need one!! This would be perfect to keep the kids busy and save on the electricity bill! haha

  4. I once saw something where an exercise bike powered a company. Each employee would take turns running it. I thought it was brilliant.

  5. Cute video Nolie! I am the same, we rarely get to the museum in Ottawa, but do want to go here now!! 🙂

  6. Oh this is great, my boys would love this!!
