People often complain about the high costs of energy and the fact that they “never have time to workout.” This invention certainly solves both conundrums.

And, most importantly, this free power invention has the potential to lift the 1.3 billion people who presently live without electricity out of poverty.

As Manoj Bhargava, the founder of the Free Electric hybrid bike, shares in the video above, it is possible to generate electricity at home while simply doing a daily workout routine.

When an individual pedals the bike, the action drives a flywheel, which turns a generator and charges a battery. This means from just one hour of pedaling, a rural household can be supplied with energy for 24 hours.

The billionaire and his team developed the bicycle to take advantage of mechanical energy created by humans to solve one of the world’s most pervasive problems.

“Everything requires energy. Energy is the great equaliser,” says Bhargava, adding that over half of the world’s population have no access to electricity or access to electricity for two or three hours per day.

Having access to clean, free energy will enable poverty-stricken communities to not only light their homes but to connect to the internet and get educated. Bhargava says the reason the majority of those who are poor stay poor is because they have no power. He aims to fix this with the free energy bicycle.

One bicycle could potentially provide a small village with electricity if each household spends on hour per day pedaling the bike.

In developed nations, the bike could also be utilized to cut energy costs and remedy the obesity crisis.

The bicycle is also a clean way to generate power. As Bhargava says himself, if half of the world uses a Free Electric bike, half of the world would be using eco-friendly energy.

Manoj’s plan is to distribute 10,000 of the bicycles in India next year. In addition, he has pledged 90% of his wealth to charity and research.

Ancient Egyptians Had Electricity & Batteries Thousands Of Years Ago

Whether or not Egyptians had access to advanced technologies that allowed them to use batteries & electricity thousands of years ago is is something firmly debated – and considered ludicrous by many archaeologists around the globe. However, there seems to be numerous pieces of evidence which suggest its very possible.

However, it seems that there are numerous discoveries in ancient Egypt that firmly point towards a forgotten piece of ancient Egyptian history.

Just how did the ancient Egyptian create the pyramids of Giza? How did they transport huge, megalithic blocks of stone across the desert? And how did they create some of the most fascinating artworks in numerous temples without light?

Interestingly, there are numerous findings that indicate ancient Egyptians might have had access to advanced technologies, thousands of years ago. Two of the most prominent pieces of evidence is a wall at the Dendera Temple and the enigmatic Baghdad Batteries.

We start off taking a look t the enigmatic Baghdad batteries also referred to as the Parthian batteries. The items were discovered in the village of Khuyut Rabbou’a in modern day Iraq. These mysterious terracotta pots are around 115 mm wide to 140 mm tall. The batteries remained long forgotten until Wilhelm König, the director of the National Museum of Iraq found the Baghdad batteries in the museum’s collections in 1938. Wilhelm König was among the first to speculate that these items were, in fact, batteries in a paper published in 1940.

Surprisingly, researchers have found out that lemon juice, grape juice, or vinegar was used as an acidic electrolyte to generate an electric current.

Moreover, experiments with models of the Baghdad Battery have produced between 3 and 5 volts. It is not a lot of “juice” when you look at it but then again, it was enough to power “something” small, thousands of years ago. These Batteries are unique; they are a discovery that is one of a kind. It is something that tells us that ancient mankind had the technology and that they were not as primitive as we thought.

“They are a one-off. As far as we know, nobody else has found anything like these. They are odd things; they are one of the life’s enigmas.”- Dr. Paul Craddock

Is it possible that these batteries were used to power devices such as the “Dendera bulb”?According to Ancient Alien Theorists, the answer is yes.

Curiosity and surprise have been present when trying to figure out how did the ancients in Egypt achieve their artistic and technical perfection in total darkness in the immense underground corridors that are found in countless monuments in different necropolis through Egypt. Just how did they manage these incredible feasts without a constant light source? That is a question that has been partially answered by archaeologists and historians, but these theories haven’t been accepted by everyone.

But what if electricity of modern times is actually a reinvention thousands of years old? Is it possible that electricity was originally discovered in the ancient world, and the Egyptian priesthood was the first to harness the power to illuminate their underground tombs and monuments?

Many people around the globe say yes and point to a series of reliefs covering the walls in a dark corner of a crypt in the temple of Hathor at Dendera.

Depicted in the temple is a device that undoubtedly looks like a huge ancient light bulb. This fantastic revelation spread quickly and caught the attention of engineers and researchers alike, and after studying the relief, they agreed that the depictions on the walls of the temple of Hathor at Dendera certainly seemed to represent an electric light bulb. As researchers compared and studied the depictions comparing the different types of bulbs they reached a conclusion: the ancient Egyptians had working light bulbs achieved by what is called “Crookes tubes.”

“When the tube [Crookes] is in operation, the beam is created where the power cord enters the cathode tube at the opposite end. In the image of the temple, the electron beam is represented as an extended snake. The tail of the Snake begins where a cable from the power box enters the tube, and the head of the snake touches the opposite end, and in Egyptian art, the serpent was the symbol of divine energy …. “- Chris Dunn,” The Giza Power Plant. ”
