FUTUREWATCH: Energy Generating Exercise Machines
Gyre9 is the brains behind Green Revolution. Though the concept isn’t new, it’s catching on and inventions like Green Revolution can help to drive the quest for a greener world. The manufacturers have merged health, environment and energy into one and turned human effort into a form of usable and clean energy, which proves to be more productive for all.
The energy generating gym-cycle looks and functions exactly like a regular exercise bike. It’s connected to a scoreboard and lights up when a user uses the pedal. But, unlike conventional bikes that let your energy go to waste, Green Revolution harnesses it and uses it to power its bright display.
With the development of such equipment, more gyms are beginning to incorporate them. Not only does it help offset the load on a building’s electricity grid, but it gives users a sense worth knowing that they’re doing some good for the environment. Sportspeople also appear to have been bitten by the bug with NBA player Steve Nash purchasing 20 of these cycles for his personal gym.
'EcoFriend' is an environmental blog. The idea behind EcoFriend is simple: to inform and educate consumers who love to possess the latest gadgets and products available in the market and who are also concerned about the environment around them.
