Quiet Nerd wanted to know if a squirrel running in a wheel could generate enough electricity to charge a phone. He built his squirrel-sized wheel using a baking pan and a stepper motor to recharge a battery pack. Once he placed it in the woods, all kinds of animals checked it out, but did they generate enough energy? We bet a hamster would be more effective.
Mark Rober and his backyard buddies are back. Not only are the obstacles more difficult than ever, but now it’s a squirrel vs. squirrel, Olympic-style competition. Who will take home the nutty grand prize? Will it be Phat Gus, Augustine, Rick, or Marty? Hit play and find out.
Games like Goat Simulator and QWOP have proven that your game concept doesn’t have to make sense to be entertaining. Indie developer and VFX artist Dan DeEntremont is running with that idea with the creation of a game with the simple concept of a squirrel wielding a variety of firearms. Punish has the story.
A while back, engineer Mark Rober built an obstacle course to try and keep squirrels from getting to his birdseed. Ultimately, the smart squirrels figured it out, so he decided to up his game with a far more complicated maze that’s even trickier to navigate. Will the squirrels get their claws on Mark’s nuts again?
Like many of us, engineer Mark Rober has a backyard bird feeder. He also faces the common problem of squirrels pilfering bird seed. So what did he do? He and his buddy created an overly-complicated solution to the problem, frustrating fluffy-tailed rodents with an American Squirrel Warrior obstacle course.
Rather than doing battle with the squirrels in his backyard, builder Michael Dutko of Duke Harmon Woodworking built himself the fanciest squirrel feeder we’ve ever seen. The Nutty Bar serves seven different artisanal nut and seed varieties on tap for his furry rodent friends.
