Indeed, people of Afghanistan are very resourceful and amazing if they can power laptops with pedals like this. I can see this machine going a long ways here in America, I think it’s a great way to get an exercise and power your laptop. Heck, why don’t they make a kit like this for real bikes? I am sure someone will start making these in the factories soon. Brilliant idea! (via laptop blog)
The people of Afghanistan are pretty resourceful they always have been, and this certainly proves that point. This is pedal machine put together by the people at OLPC Afghanistan it gives enough power to get these little laptops going.
