R2B2: Electricity is not the answer!


I was running around on the internet and found this really intriguing device. As I am wanting to save money and live a more independent life this looks like a great way to explore some new possibilities.


German designer  Christoph Thetard has created, during his studies at the  Bauhaus University Weimar, an electricity free kitchen machine. He called it R2B2. The R2B2 came to life as a result of an eco-friendly project. There are three different kitchen appliances in the R2B2: Coffee grinder, hand blender, & food processor. All are powered by rotating a flywheel with muscular strength. Electricity is not necessary anymore.

The pedal powers the machine up to 400 rpm which produces 350 W energy per 1 minute. The machine even has a storage cabinet for the different items. You can now exercise while cooking and not just that! You are going to cut down on the electricity bill and make a step in saving the environment.
