Beautiful Human Powered Carousel

A carousel powered by PLAY! Ecosistema Urbano recently
unveiled an amazing energy-generating carousel in the
Netherlands that produces power while lighting up riders’
lives! Ropes, pulleys and levers hang from the red and white
canopy, inviting visitors to play – and as it spins the carousel
harvests energy to power a built-in light show.Amsterdam’s
Carve design bureau invited 10 European design firms to create
innovative projects that would appeal to all ages, encourage play,
and help make the new Governeursplein Square
more fun and interactive for members of the community.
The Energy Carousel’s swirling peppermint canopy shelters
a series of swing ropes hung at different heights.
Get excited and learn more.
