The Bicycle Generator

As we advance into the future we try to become more  “eco-friendly” with everything becoming electronic instead of oil based. And other ways to generate power have been popping up as well. A good example of this is the Bicycle Generator, which we are making. When you pedal a bike it converts the energy you pedaled into electricity. This is a good way to get some exercise while also generating power for your appliances. An average person could generate 100-320 watts of electricity which could power most things in your house. The only drawback to this is the amount of time you need to pedal.

This relates to engineering because it fixes a problem with something you made, in this case the bicycle generator.
