Cycling for 1 hour Can Power your House for a day
Here's a great way to lose those fat and keep you healthy while saving on energy cost. The CEO of 5-Hour Energy, an energy shot product, has developed a stationary bicycle that can produce enough electricity to power a small house with 1 hour cycling.
Manoj Bhargava invented the "Free Electric" which is a stationary bike that is connected to batteries which it charges while the user is using the bike. He developed the bike to make electricity available to places where there are no electricity in developing countries. If mass produced this will significantly reduce world poverty.
According to World Energy Outlook, an estimated 1.2 billion people or 17% of the world population do not have access to electricity in 2013.
“Energy is the great equalizer. So you try to look for that which is the one thing that will lead to benefits that are across hundreds of things,” said Bhargava. “Human mechanical energy is so amazing, why can’t we use that to create energy?” he added.
Bhargava said he “invented a hybrid bicycle that you pedal for an hour and you have electricity for 24 hours. We call it: Free Electric.”
The Free Electric bike will not only give you free electricity it will also help fight obesity.
