Wild Idea #1- Bicycle powered office

Everything you can imagine is real. ~Pablo Picasso

While digging through old footage, I came across this video clip (shot 2 yrs ago on an old DV cam) and thought it would be quite fun to give you a glimpse behind the scenes at Wildfire…

Apparently most adults can generate a steady 75 to 150 watts with spurts of double that power.

Here are some links to the science stuff of retrofitting your bike to power different electronic devices! P.S you need quite a few power monkeys to make this do-able!

  1. How did you set this up? I don’t want to go to the gym and cycle myself to pieces for nothing if I can power up my home office instead. How did you do this?
