Bicycling at your desk

Keep yourself fit all day while generating electricity to power many of your devices.

Two Upstate New York inventors have come up with the idea of a bicycle desk and are looking for funding through Kickstarter.

This is from their Kickstarter campaign:
“With an efficiency of 97%, bicycle technology is nearly perfect. So why do we use it only for transportation?

Bicycle technology can and should be used for many everyday tasks. Using your own power rather than plugging into the grid is not only fun, but helps you understand your energy use and reduce your ecological footprint.

There are a billion bicycles in the world today – nearly one in every home. One day, we hope to see every household charging phones, processing food, and pumping water with pedal power.”

Wow. You won’t get very far but what a great idea. First the standing desk, then the treadmill desk, now the bicycle desk!
