Re: We need more of this!
Cool, silly fun! It would have been funny if the wheel got out of control, and smashed into the president's limo, or onto the football field, rolling over the defensive line. The one bad thing about working at home is that I don't have any other kids to play with.

@stratustician- Love it, especially making ladders from cable. I think I'd like to see someone do something with old hardware, like maybe make one of those desk toys where the balls swing and knock against each other out of monitors.

We need more of this!
While sadly we don't have enough iMac boxes around the office here to make a hamster wheel.  I do propose a few other ideas that we've actually done around here.

 

HP Server Box Fort

Dell box Jenga (they're nice and flat, so stacking is easy.

Sketchy ladders made from obsolete cables...

Any other ideas we can implement over here?
