So you gym? Good for you! Did you know you could help in creating electricity? The California Fitness gym in Hong Kong is working closely with all members to transform some of the energy they spend on treadmills to power light bulbs! At the moment, they are powering some 27 TV sets and five 60-watt light bulbs.
As a part of making the world more eco-friendly, there is great potential to this idea. Imagine attaching all staircases with some devices that would convert the energy you spend into electricity. The only real hitch in this is the initial investment of setting up the plants to convert energy into usable power.
In an ideal world, your house floors would have devices to capture any energy possible and route it back to let you use your electrical devices. So if you stop walking or talking, lights go out! Yes, there are some flaws to the theory, but it’s a start. And this will also make energy as cheap or as costly as you want!
