- Take a break from the rat race at Bumbershoot, by running this giant, electricity-producing hamster wheel.
I'm told there's live music and stuff at Bumbershoot, but the biggest attraction will surely be the Toyota Prius Playground, where you'll get a chance to generate electricity to power the festival by operating stationary bicycles and a gigantic hamster wheel.
- Free snow cone! (Attractive woman licking your ear, not included.)
You can watch how much power you're generating by following a real time display of energy production and consumption within the playground, and best of all, after three minutes of pedaling/hamstering, you'll be rewarded with a free snow cone made by the power you generated. Cool. Literally.
The Prius Playground, a partnership with the not-for-profit Global Inheritance, is intended to inspire youth to think creatively about energy solutions, but all you really need to know is giant hamster wheel and free snow cones! So what's not to like?
