People often complain about the huge costs of energy and the fact that they ‘never have time to workout.’ This invention certainly solves both conundrums.

 

The amazing idea belongs to Manoj Bhargava, who built a stationary bike to power millions of homes worldwide that have little or zero electricity. He plans that by early next year he is likely to distribute his Free Electric battery-equipped bikes in India.


 


Manoj, founder of the Free Electric hybrid bike uses mechanical energy in the simplest way possible in order to transform an hour of exercise into supplying a rural household with energy for twenty-four hours.

 

Manoj’s mechanism is simple, the flywheel is activated when you pedal, and this powers the generator and charges a battery.

 

According to Bicycling, “The Free Electric is made with standard bike parts, which makes it easily fixable by any mechanic around the world. The bike is cheap, clean, and practical in terms of providing energy to those who need it most on a global scale.”


 

Manoj said, “Our target is to begin with India, but really it can be used anywhere. There are 1.3 billion people around the world who are still living without access to electricity.”

 

Furthermore, he claims that the Free Electric essentially creates “better health, more leisure time, better access to education, and opportunities for entrepreneurship–it could literally change the world.”
