Minnesota team wins Red Bull’s Creation event

Red Bull’s annual Creation event involved 16 teams from across the country who came together for three days of high stakes innovation with the city as their playground. A secret warehouse in Brooklyn full of tools, materials and hardware hackers were given the task of building a creation designed to move the weight of a person (100lbs) from point A to point B without using any fossil fuels. They had 3 days. The winning team is named 1.21 Jigawatts, and they are from Minneapolis.

They created a massive hamster wheel, wired into a mobile network, given its own phone number that could somehow receive up to 60,000 one-word text messages at a time. Once it received the text message, the hamster wheel would actually roll and perfectly print the word out along the ground. Grand prize – $5k. Pretty cool huh?

Thanks for the great pictures CoolThings.com and MaximumTech.
