I’ve been reading a little bit today about pedal power being used as an electrical and mechanical power source. It’s actually a little sad that this area of technology hasn’t advanced significantly in a hundred years. All the major leaps we’ve made and we left pedal power behind.
There are a handful of people dedicated to innovating and finding practical uses for pedal power in a modern world. They’ve come up with some pretty cool stuff, remarkably similar to old human powered machines our great-great-grandparents might have used.
Maybe I’ll write a post sometime about some of the human power tools in use and under development.
