The ratapult needs power! Female mice on exercise wheels provide power. 

(I saw an autonomous slug catching system a few years back. Very creepy. It dumped the slugs into a fuel-cell like power generation system. So it was carbon neutral...)

Could be a good ongoing project - people could add their own additions with passageways going around different parts of noisebridge.
