We have all seen a couple of artsy creations using actual consumer good containers before. But now we find a rollercoaster-like creation from a group who call themselves “Thinking Outside the Can” which actually garnered the winning nod at this year’s Canstruction Madison.
Better known as the Roller CANster, the wonderfully made piece was made possible through the use of familiar can-packaged products.
As per the creators, “a metal hook attached to a bike chain pulls the can up the hill, and a sprocket near the bottom of the hill is powered by a DC motor.” At the top, they simply release the can and gravity does the rest.
Also, all food from the cans will be donated to MOM’s Food Pantry, which in turn invites the public to view the structures and contribute their own donation of canned food to help end hunger.
