i saw this on gizmodo (http://gizmodo.com/5380475/pedal+powered-olpc-tested-in-afghanistan-free-power-and-killer-calves-for-all) today... the concept of pedaling to power a laptop is brilliant! it would be very cool to see the concept extended to power electronics around a house.

i'm not sure how much power pedaling can generate, but even if it is enough to power the lights in a room, the tv, or a laptop, it's would be pretty cool - you not only get clean power, you also get exercise with a purpose!
