Default Re: Soylent green car generator exercycle!!

Just recently I saw a feature on the news about a guy who rigged up an automotive alternator to an exercycle and wired it up to a television. Whenever his kids wanted to watch TV they had to get on the exercise bike and pedal to produce power for the tele. That way they weren't sitting there, getting fat but were burning off the calories while they watched the tube. Neat idea...if you aren't one of his kids.
