Meet the Maker: Joe Donoughe, Human Powered Snow Cones

The wait is finally over. Guilt-free treats, here we come!

Human-Powered Snow Cones are the brainchild of dreamer and inventor Joe Donoughe. This Maker has put his attraction in the hands (and feet) of those who use it. Using his homemade Ice Age snow cone wheel, Joe has enabled any individual the ability to be the “Maker” of their own masterpiece!

Imagine a life-sized hamster wheel that uses a conveyor belt and the result of your own energy to create a delicious, frozen treat; it all results in the show stopper that is the Human Powered Snow Cone.

The world’s largest snow cone machine works through easy-to-follow steps. You can walk or run your way in the wheel, and once you’re done make your way to the flavor station. Voilà, your snow cone is served!

This machine allows kids and adults alike to think outside the “wheel” and beyond the norm. The end result is in your own power, and eventually, your stomach too.
