Still want an exercise bike with laptop stand. [Jun. 23rd, 2007|11:28 pm]

So for years now, I've been looking for an exercise bike with a laptop stand. It doesn't seem like it such an outlandish idea, I sit in a chair all day, I might as well be pedaling. I've used exercise bikes while reading, why not while computing?

But nobody makes one of these things. My grandfather said I should patent the idea, but it seems too obvious and I haven't got the time to start a company around it anyway. I just want one.

Ideally, I'd want the it to also be a bicycle powered generator that charged the laptop. That way there's a built-in incentive to keep pedaling. But I'd be happy with just the basic model to start with...

I thought they made exercise bikes with book stands, though, so it shouldn't be that hard to rig. Maybe you need to see if one of your former TimeSys colleagues would be willing to help you lash something together....
