On the Electric Mill
My Sara loves to read (that's her lounging out above). She especially loves to read about energy. She also loves to talk about it.
So, recently we were having a deep conversation about the energy needs of the world, and she and I got a brainstorm...
What if... what if every fitness center in America could harness the human output... of every stationary biker, weight lifter... just by some little invention that channeled the energy (kind of like the wind mill idea) and stored it, or reused it right there at the center?
I read an article on energy recently that talked about the huge difference that many little energy savings could make. So... why not make a huge difference with many little energy outputs?
We thought it would be a great marketing ploy too... Lose weight, gain energy for America! Now, the world can wait for Sara to grow up and invent this little energy-capturing device, or somebody out there can do it right now. Why wait?
