Pedal-Powered Computer

I wasn't sure whether to file this one under renewable energy technologies or health & wellness.

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), an international organization dedicated to creating educational opportunities for the world's poorest children, has announced that OLPC Afghanistan has developed a pedal-powered laptop computer that an 8-year-old child can run.

Now if we could just develop a similar solution for high-definition plasma TVs, we might have a solution for the epidemic of obesity facing certain Western nations. In Canada, according to a Library of Parliament study, there are approximately 4.5 million obese people.
