Electrostatic Hamster Toy

To make Fluffy fluffy
  [vote for,

Away with boring hamster-wheels. Begone, lackluster flat-haired hamsters. The MaxCo Electrostatic Hamster Wheel is here.

In place of the regular wire or plastic wheel, the MaxCo Electrostatic Hamster Wheel is, in effect, a rodent-sized Wimshurst machine. The faster Fluffy runs, the higher the charge developed, and the more his (or her - it's difficult to tell) fur will fluff out.

As a bonus, the charged hamster can also be stuck to the ceiling afterwards.

Hm, yeah, that really *is* difficult. [jutta, Nov 16 2007]

       Jutta - many thanks for the link. I checked my hamster, though, and it doesn't appear to have either a pink *or* a blue label attached to its genitals.

       And, to be honest, I'd be a little bit worried about you if it did.

       Lord Kelvin would have been impressed. Perhaps there is still the opportunity to drip feed his/her water basin with a Kelvin Thunderstorm. Of course, the entire process may *short* lived, but would still have a certain *influence*.
