So, the UNT Rec Center is apparently doing something really cool – they are transforming the kinetic energy generated when you run on the treadmills/ ellipticals into electric energy! I don’t know if it’s fully operational yet, but look here.
Really motivating for environmentalists who want to generate clean, carbon-free energy, and also for students who want to contribute toward producing such energy!
Also, a new project from Google lets you ride like this.
It has been implemented at a park in New Zealand, and we are just waiting for it to go public for everybody to use in big cities as a means of public transport =D Won’t that be cool?
