Interesting article on cnn.com. Villagers in a remote area of Loas are using bicycles on trainers as a power source for their PC's.
To bad we cannot figure out a way to save all that energy we output during the winter months.

Lance can average about 500 watts for an hour. That's about 2 PC's, tops, right? Oh, but that doesn't include a monitor. Better get an energy efficient laptop with a smal display.

Solar might be better, though.
