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...

You shouldn't post comments like this when I'm bored.

Cool!

When I get back to Austin, I think I'm ordering one of these. It's designed for a more traditional keyboard and monitor, rather than a laptop, but I can work with this.
