While excellent for Exercise and moderating the amount of time spent watching TV, I seriously question the energy efficiency of Human powered technology. I bet that an objective Food-to-Socket vs. Well-to-Socket analysis will show that MORE energy, be it Fossil fuel OR simply Calories/BTUs is used by Human power?
