What’s the Next Evolution of the Hamster Wheel? Hamster Submarine! [VIDEO]

Hamsters have it made. They spend their entire lives running around their own private palace and eating all they can. If that weren’t enough, now science has given them their own homemade submarine.

A group of amateur oceanic engineers built a working submarine for their cage crawler that is powered by its occupant (i.e. a hamster).

It’s actually much simpler than it sounds. The entire vehicle is housed in a three-liter soda bottle and powered by (what else?) a hamster wheel, which is attached to a propeller.

Houdina is the first to pilot this innovative vehicle, but what would have made her maiden voyage even cooler was if she christened the sub with a hotel mini-bar sized champagne bottle. See her in action below.
