Invent a bicycle that can power your home with electricity for 24 hours by pedaling 1 hour

Would you be willing to ride for an hour every day if that could power your home for 24 hours?

More than half of the world's population has no access to electricity, or only two or three hours a day. But without electricity, without light, without technical progress, without human progress. But thanks to this man, access to electricity could well be democratized.

As part of his "Billions in Change" initiative, billionaire Manoj Bhargava unveiled a pioneering invention: a bicycle that can provide electricity to homes that have little or no. By next year, some 10,000 of these bikes could be installed in India. And, eventually, we could find it everywhere.

This is a hybrid bicycle capable of providing electricity through human mechanical energy. The principle is "simple": when pedaling this bike, the action drives a flywheel that drives a generator and charges a battery. This means that in one hour of pedaling alone, a rural household could supply its energy for 24 hours. A revolution for almost half the world.

Anything else? You respect the environment and exercise.
