I used to think hamsters were cool until about 1990 when the field behind our house caught fire and all the field mice fled… right into our house. The little fuzzy bastards apparently liked it there and they would wake me up at all hours of the night doing whatever mice do in the dark.
Hamsters would be great at powering machines since they can run forever on those hamster wheel things. Forget nuclear or solar power. In the future, everything will be powered by these chubby little furballs with limitless energy.
Earlier, we saw what superhero squirrels would look like with the help of Photoshop. This time around, it’s the hamsters’ turn, and there’s no need for any image editing software because Etsy seller Chez Marmota’s costumes have got them covered for real.
Sometimes, the right accessories make a person’s outfit come alive. Other times, it’s the accessories being worn that’s actually alive, and that’s the case with Cecilia Valentine’s “Fur is Alive” series.
Her pieces are composed of bulky but hollow 3D-printed pieces that look plain on their own.
I have to think all the way back to 2007’s hamster-powered paper shredder to the last time I wrote about a gadget which could run on rodent power. But much like the Flintstones, I’ve always wanted more technology to operate on animal power.
I’m not sure how I missed this great video clip when it first hit the Inter-tubes. Maybe I was too busy playing video games. The clip involves a hamster shimmying his way through a maze of dark jagged tunnels in search of an exit (and no, Richard Gere had nothing to do with this).
So maybe you can’t have a real rabbit or hamster, for whatever reason, but like any sane person, you want to have something cute and fuzzy around. Something you can hug and squeeze, or hold in your hand while it wiggles in an adorable way.
Do you have too many adapters plugged into in your power strip? This decidedly Flinstonian piece of office equipment eliminates the need for electricity by using hamster power.
As little hammy pedals his butt off, he generates his own shredded paper bedding.
