Techstination feature for Friday, April 12, 2019

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.
