Wow, human powered ferris wheel!

  1. Feb 25, 2015 #1

    This is quite interesting, I'm wondering if there's another way of creating human powered ferris wheel with mechanical parts.

    Can anyone give any suggestion? I'd love to get more information regarding this!

    The guys that jump and hang on to a seat look to be having a lot of fun!

    1) The Ferris wheel is already mechanical. Assuming you mean something more complex, you could connect bicycles. A flywheel would store energy that could be fed in as needed. The linkage could be electromagnetic instead of gear and sprocket. The mind boggles.
