Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Think you burn a lot of energy at the gym? Fitness equipment maker SportsArt is helping to make all of that energy useful…by turning it into electricity. That’s the concept behind the company’s Eco-Power line of fitness equipment. The company’s chief technology officer Ruben Mejia..
“If you think of a hamster running on a hamster wheel we kind of have that same concept where the equipment is the hamster wheel and you are the hamster. So as your motion is turning a belt or a stride on an elliptical or a wheel on a cycle, it’s actually powering a generator which is producing electricity.”
Which in turn can help power the gym. They’re planning Eco-Power equipment for high end home gyms as well. Find more at GoSportsArt.com.
