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!

Note: The Power Generation page is on SimplePlanes.com, but if you can log in to SimplePlanes.com with the same username/password you are using here.

    That's an amazing idea but I've got a tablet and I cant download simple rockets on my computer so I use my tablet because it has a big screen and its easy to use wait a minute do taps generate energy!?

    @GSpace no it didn’t. It just almost killed thousands of people on the other side without their knowledge. But it did actually reach the other side of the planet.

    Wait how do you get electricity from our mouse? I mean the transportation of electricity. There is no wire connecting it.
