Pedal Powered Laptop

Having a somewhat disturbing connection with my PC, I have often thought, "Wouldn't it be nice if I had to work out to work." For example, if my mouse weighed 50 lbs, I could probably be a champion arm wrestler in a month's time.

But, instead, I become softer for every minute I spend at this computer, and I spend a lot of canadian pharmacy overnight tramadol minutes here. This YouTube video that I spotted at ecoIron shows a pretty impressive pedal power generating system. The beefy guy on levitra tablet the left does all the should i chew cialis work, while the guy behind the camera, one can assume, put together the electronics for the system. They're using an ultracapacitor, it seems, to store and regulate the charge, and have a "watts up" power meter measuring the draw from the device. Zack, the pedaler, seems to have no problem keeping up the 20-30 watts it takes to power the http://www.grantontrailers.com/cialis-100 IBM Thinkpad.

I would pay a lot of money for a desk chair that had a keyboard and cialis soft tabs mouse pad and pedals. The Pedal Chair: Stay fit, use renewable power, and strengthen the man-machine interface. No one was ever this ready for the apocalypse.

Good Idea

I like this concept. I wonder if it's possible to build a gym on this idea. Really, with all the energy people spend on working out, the gym could possibly power itself.

Driving to the gym

It *does* seem a little silly to me that people use energy to drive to the gym to expend energy.
That should be captured, a full gym could power itself and sell excess power back to the grid! It should also lower gym membership pricing because they don't have to pay to link for you similar levitra power the lights and the equipment.

In fact, depending on how well it works, gyms might turn into electric coops that pay people to come power them. ~pondering~

Back to the OP, I'd pay decent money to be able to power my computer while typing with something like this under the desk...
