Could This Pedal Desk Save Your Lazy Ass?
Whether we are stalking people on facebook or building applications for iphones, we all have to admit we spend countless hours of our day in front of our computer screens. But our bodies weren’t made for such lack luster activity. While our minds explore the universe that is the internet, our bodies are stuck planted in our seats doing jack shit.
Thus, the pedal powered desk was born! The stationary bike/desk hybrid is nothing a new idea. But, I’ve never seen one that looked this swagged out. The great people at WeBike did a phenomenal job creating an amazing piece of function furniture that could work well in any college dorm. Well that is if WeBike wasn’t charging two years of tuition for one bike.
The current asking price of the WeBike creation is $13,000 (haha please).
I mean the concept and design is nice though. It even has an LED ring display in front of each seat that tells you how much power your generating. According to We-Watt, the system can generate around 230Vac/30Watts of output per seat.
