Where fun and social benefit are no more antagonists
A vast ghost house with attractions made to make the kids
sweat (ball pools, falling ladders, you name it). All the
are designed with electromagnetic systems made to suck a
little bit of the energy displayed by the frantic kids. May
like another exploitation idea, but think about
it this way:
_ Kids get a safe place where they can use their whole
energy, which gets rarer and rarer in big cities (look at the
kids in tokyo).
_ The park is free, as the energy sold pays tha maintenance
_ Parents can tolerate to be in the vicinity of kids (as the
latter are no more hyper, they may even be able to socially
beahave, let's dream), even when
they are tired by a hard day's work, stressed about life, and
depressed about the general mediocrity of their
_ Kids get regular exercise, increasing the quantity of
of blood, therefore making them smarter.
_ Finally, with an average of 20% of the population producing
only 10 watt 1 hour a day, you get the equivalent of 10
nuclear plants in the USA.
_ Eventually, to make it even funnier for the kids, there
be "restricted" areas you could access only after producing
certain production average in other areas, in a

such as ecologic gym clubs, etc.....

||Power producing gyms for adults has been done to death here, but I love this. I picture hordes of rug rats tromping up long flights of stairs to come squealing down roller slides.
If there is enough power generated, Planet Fun might even pay me to bring my kids there.
Two buns way up. Well ok one bun, but two sounded better.
||Of course, the idea was not so much the Luna Pump
itself, but more a way to extract "extra" energy from kids,
leaving them socially compatible with the rest of
humanity, and as a side effect avoiding the impending
energy-related WWIII. But I like the idea that humans
begin their lives by continually wasting muscular energy in
turbulent, noisy games. Plus "the body is everything".
||Hah! Just wait a few 50 years after the oil-crisis, when the
energy prices will burn....
