Hamster-Powered Night Light

August 27, 2004 | Amateur Science | By: Mark VandeWettering

Hamster-Powered Night Light is a really nice school project that the people at otherpower.com helped an eight grader realize. They modified a hamster wheel to be a custom generator, and also rigged an ordinary bicycle computer to give them “telemetry”. Neat stuff, and definitely helps student learn about motors, generators, and magnetism.
