Hamster Power

Some guys built an alternator and connected it to a Hamster wheel.

Whenever Skippy runs, it charges batteries. Whenever it gets dark, the light comes on. (Alternatively, they had it hooked up so that it came on whenever he ran.)

It's also hooked up to a bicycle computer so they can see how much Skippy has run and his top speed. (from Rob, link above)
