Power Pump Seats Exhibition by Hands On!

Power Pump Seats

Pump up your activity level!

Power Pump SeatsHere, visitors use the weight of their bodies to pump air and make colorful balls rise in a tube. Visitors sit on unique, compressible seats made of go-kart tires. As they bounce up and down, the weight of their bodies forces air through a horizontal tube which is connected to a vertical tube containing a lightweight ball. Depending on the timing and frequency of their bouncing, the balls rise, fall or stay suspended. Colored bands on the tubes allow visitors to measure how high the balls go.

This exhibit can be purchased in either a two-seat or three-seat version. The three-seat version is freestanding.
