This one goes out to all you cyclists out there.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could harness all that energy you’re putting in to pedaling yourself from point A to point B? While this new pedal-power harnessing technology won’t help you do more than yap on your handset just a bit longer, putting your bicycle’s pedals to better more use than ordinary transportation is a worthy feat indeed.
O2 is showcasing their new cellphone battery charger which takes your pedal-power and turn it in to electrical power. O2 plans to highlight the pedal-powered charger at the O2 Wireless Festival in London’s Hyde Park. Unfortunately, the demo is being shown on stationary bikes – which bodes well for applications for cardio machines in gyms around the world – but if successful, we could see the tech hit the street, literally.
