Could you imagine powering your entire house with just a bicycle? Cycling for 60 minutes and getting enough power to last for 24 hours? It must sound like a sci-fi movie that combines our two greatest worries, the need to exercise to stay in shape and the enormously high electricity bills – both resolved with a single machine!
It would be the perfect solution and even the 1,3 billion poor people who currently live on the edge of society could afford living with electricity.
Well, it seems that the future is here and it’s called the Free Electric hybrid bike, the brain-child of Manoj Bhargava. The bike’s method of operation is explained in the video below and the inventor himself explains the amazing opportunity to power your entire house with regular exercise.
Here’s how this bike works: you start pedaling and turn on the generator which charges the battery. Cycling for 60 minutes will generate enough energy for 24 hours in a typical rural household. Its founder, the millionaire, together with his team, invented this bike with the aim to use the mechanical energy created by people and utilize it to solve one of the most common problems these days. He says:
“Everything requires energy. Energy is the great equalizer.” He continues by saying that almost 50% of the world population is left with no electricity for an average of 2-3 hours every day. If people were to start using his bike this won’t be a problem anymore. The free energy it creates will enable millions of poor people around the world to gain access to the Internet and educate themselves, in addition to providing electricity for the basic needs.
Bhargava believes that numerous people stay uneducated simply due to the lack of electricity, so this bike has the potential to help them. If every household was to spend an hour on the bike just one of these amazing bikes could provide enough energy for the entire village.
Moreover, the undeveloped countries are not the only ones which can benefit from this invention, people from developed countries face high obesity rates and high electricity bills. With the help of this bike they’ll be able to reduce obesity and cut energy costs.
Additionally, Bhargava believes that if half of the world uses this bike, half of the world would be using eco-friendly energy, as this bicycle generates clean energy. He plans on distributing more than 10.000 of his bicycles all over India just next year and start an energy revolution in the world. He is a true philanthropist, and has devoting 90% of his entire wealth to charity and research, pledging to help millions of poor people around the world and make modern living available to all.
