watts with the wasted calories?


How rad is this? A stationary bicycle that actually generates usable power. So on a rainy day, or an indoor workout sans street traffic, you can do something useful, power your tv, lights, stereo, etc.

I don't really watch t.v., but bet I could find some other uses. Not sure if you could power a laptop - maybe by storing energy in a battery?

Probably won't get to this project any time in the immediate future, but would be psyched to hear from anyone whose tried.

Photo here shows high schoolers making pedal powered smoothies during one of our organic lunches with the Byerly Bicycle Blender, definitely on my wish list.
