Empower Playgrounds has installed a carousel for children that generates electricity in Ghana.
In 2008, the children at the Golden Sunbeam Montessori School in Ghana received a most welcome gift: a merry-go-round. But unlike other carousels, this one generates electricity that is used in LED lamps. A zip-line that generates electricity is set to go into operation soon.
What other naturally fun forces could be harnessed (but not enslaved)?
