An enterprising fun fair operator in southern India has devised the ultimate in zero emission rides – a man-powered ferris wheel. Four or five men take turns spinning the ride, using their full body weight for optimum effect, sending passengers flying round.

It makes for riveting viewing, although we’re not quite sure who’s having more fun, the operators or the passengers. Can’t see it being passed for use in regulated fun fairs, no matter how low the emissions are! You can just imagine the reaction of health and safety officers the world over; they must be reaching in shock and horror for their clipboards and complaint forms as we speak.
