    Since its invention, the wheel has been used extensively and improved upon throughout the history. Archaeological evidence from the palaeolithic era – around 750,000 years ago – suggests that early humans knew that heavy objects could be moved easily by rolling them. But research on diagrams from ancient clay tablets show that wheels for transport didn’t actually exist until after potters wheels in Mesopotamia, present-day Iraq. For centuries, tinkerers, philosophers, mathematicians and crackpots have tried to design perpetual motion devices that, once set in motion, would continue forever, producing more energy than they consume. One common take on this machine is a wheel or water mill that uses changes in weight to continually rotate. The overbalanced wheel, for example, has weighted arms attached to the rim of the wheel that fold down or extend out. The U.S. patent office refuses to assess claims for perpetual motion devices unless the inventors can produce working models. The wheel was invented in the 4th millennium BC in Lower Mesopotamia(modern-​​day Iraq), where the Sumerian people inserted rotating axles into solid discs of wood. It was only in 2000 BC that the discs began to be hollowed out to make a lighter wheel. Each of our 41 wheelchair accessible gondolas can seat up to eight riders. At the St. Louis Wheel, we want you to enjoy time with those you came with and you will only ride with guests that are a part of your group. Please note that wheelchairs on gondolas can affect the overall seating capacity and larger groups can choose to split into separate gondolas for comfort. Our Attendants are always ready to make your ride a comfortable, pleasant experience. This can be used as a random name Picker Wheel in an event where its behavior is like a digital prize wheel.
