Hamster-powered Night Light

02004-08-25 | Uncategorized | 4 comments

‘Can a rodent generate enough electricity to power a light by running on it’s wheel?’ That was enough inspiration for us to start the project, and we soon added Skippy the Hamster to the Otherpower.com payroll. He’s a Syrian Hamster, and we chose that breed since they are nocturnal and like to run on the exercise wheel.
