Your daily workout just got greener! This award winning Create a Gym concept was designed by Mitchell Joachim of Archinode Studio with more than fitness in mind. The floating River Gym offers a fabulous view, state of the art exercise equipment, and generates its own power – while purifying the water and propelling other boats as well.
The River Gym is not the first attempt to harness the natural energy of human power. California Fitness in Hong Kong motivates members with human powered treadmills and trainers, powering lights and televisions within the gym.
The first Sustainable Dance Club converts the energy of party-goers on the dance floor into power for a totally sustainable environment. Created by Enviu, the concept incorporates earth-friendly innovations like toilets flushed with rainwater and rooftop gardens into a trendy hotspot that doesn’t harm the planet.
Cyclecide doesn’t generate energy with their pedal-powered carnival, but it’s definitely plenty of good, clean fun. From pedal-powered carousels to the one of a kind bike rodeo, Cyclecide proves that electronics are not necessary for a good time and designs some of the most innovative human-powered fun park rides ever imagined.
There are hundreds of new human-powered creations emerging each year. Pedal-driven hydrofoils, lightweight people-propelled lawnmowers, and entire shopping centers powered by footsteps are just the beginning of the possibilities of human power. Shave a few dollars off your own electric bill with a pedal-powered generator that can power a lamp, the television, or even your laptop.
