How about a desk peddler that controls power to your monitor? You have keep the cadence above x RPMs or the monitor shuts off. Pedal faster, it comes back on. You'd need:

1. Desk Peddler with a...
2. Cadence Monitor hooked up to a...
3. Programmable RPM Switch

Hook the switch inline on your computer monitor's power cable and start pedaling!

Imagine if companies installed these under each desk in the office. And... imagine if they were hooked up to a battery that charged from your pedaling and powered your monitor and computer?

I'm not drunk... I promise!

A meeting is an event at which the minutes are kept and the hours are lost.
