One Hour Of Exercise On This Bike Can Power Your Home For A Day

Imagine powering your home with just one hour of exercise-for free. Manoj Bhargava, CEO of 5-hour Energy maker Living Essentials, is working to make that possible. His Free Electric hybrid bike can power a rural household for 24 hours after just one hour of someone pedaling on the stationary bike. The innovative bicycle wheel drives a flywheel that turns a generator, which in turn charges a battery. Bhargava created this concept out of his desire to give power to the parts of world affected by poverty. According to the creator, pricing of the bike will range from free to $250, depending on people's ability to pay.
