3 very cool ways to use human power to generate electricity. Generate Watts!

Create energy without pollution!

Copenhagen Wheel

This wheel, developed by a team at MIT led by Christine Outram, won the U.S. round of the James Dyson Award. It generates electricity during braking (similar to the regenerative braking you find in many car hybrids). It then offers that electricity as a power boost up hills or over long distances. That power is controlled by an iPhone interface. (Shades of Apple’s Smart!) The hope is that  by making previously difficult bike commutes easy, the wheel could make bikes a viable option for countless more commuters. Look for it within a year, cost about $600.
