Player Power

Dev AndrewGarrison  6 months 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!

    So i was hoping to 3d print some stuff like before bit before there was that thing we could use that is no oonger a partner (also they didn't print moving parts as moving meaning you always ended up with a solid block )

    I was wondering what 3d printers would work in printing parts that can move

    Wait what..... Wireless power? Maybe I'm stupid and misunderstood something but if i didn't then we could use this technology to make planes with infinite range...

    Can anyone explain why my achievement of 457.816 Gigawatt's of server power was reduced?

    Is this another one of those COOL KIDS conspiracies on SP? Ya know where

    only a certain group somehow ever gets massive votes and spotlights even when their

    build is complete garbage. While some little guy goes unnoticed. I am just Chaka, I

    didn't know Elite were going to take me down too.

    If your mouse wheel can be loosen, you can use a compressed air can/sprayer to get a $H|t ton of velocity

    @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.
