HPS Hamstar: the Hamster Powered Submarine


"The major difference between steam power and hamster power is that you don't have to shovel hamsters into a furnace.  Another key difference is the smaller carbon footprint made by hamster energy than that of coal and other fossil fuels."
~creators of HPS Hamstar
In this project, the following overall objectives were set before design or construction began:
  • The capsule must be capable of housing at least one (1) hamster when fully submersed
  • The capsule must be built of materials derived from common household objects
  • The capsule must be re-deployable
  • The life and well being of the hamster must not be compromised in any way
