Two common complaints in today’s society are the high costs of electricity, and having no time to exercise, virtually unrelated problems; until now. Inventor Manoj Bhargava has devised a revolutionary, at-home fitness bike that solves both problems by turning a 60-minute workout into an entire day’s worth of energy for your whole home.
“Everything requires energy. Energy is the great equaliser,” said Bhargava, going on to say that more than half of the world’s population does not have access to consistent electricity, or even any electricity at all. A single bicycle could provide electricity to a small village if each household were to spend one hour a day riding it. This device he and his team have created will take full advantage our physical capability to produce energy for the 1.3 billion individuals that live without electricity due to poverty.
Manoj now plans to distribute 10,000 of these bicycles throughout India during the next year and has pledged 90% of his wealth to charity and research. He said that if half of the world were to utilize these Free Electric Bikes, half of the world would then be using eco-friendly energy.
