Player Power

Dev AndrewGarrison  11 days ago

We are always brainstorming ways to cut down on our server costs. One of the biggest costs is the electricity to run these machines so we have been on the lookout for alternative power sources. It turns out one of those power sources is in your hands. It is estimated that internet users generate approximately 1.21GW of electricity by spinning the scroll wheels on their mice and we intend to capture this and put it to good use.

Without getting too much into the details, we have been working with a hardware manufacturer to build an intermediary device that sits between your mouse and your PC that captures the power generated by your mouse wheel and uses 5G technology to route the power to your local data center.

If you are interested, check out the Power Generation page and see how much power you can contribute. Thanks for lending us a hand!

    @jagtigercorps Thanks, my nose is getting pretty backed up now that I don't have that finger. I may have to switch to using my pinky to unclog my nose.

    "Seriously you're a machine ?"
    Yes i am.

    Related to my profile pic, the most efficient way make power is by rubbing your mouse aganist your thight.

    @AndrewGarrison, @Shippy456

    I have now reached 457.816 Gigawatts of Power Donation.

    After a lengthy ER visit and having to have my finger surgically removed due to damage that couldn't be repaired from scrolling for so many hours. I think it's time someone released an update to SimplePlanes. Some more parts to use.
    Pleeeeeeeease. I need it while recuperating from the loss of my finger.

    Impossible. Your scroll wheel must’ve been spinning near light speed to generate that much power.

    I just wanted to be in 1st place of something in life. Scrolling a wheel had to be it I guess.
