Personal Energy Orb Arduino: Need Computer Time? Onya bike!

We spend more and more time on our computers these day, and according to two students at the University of Munich, we need reminding to get outside and excercise.  The Personal Energy Orb Aruino (PEO) is an energy device that limits computer usage depending on the distance you travel on your bike. You charge the PEO up by pedaling your bike, and the charge equates to an Energy Level on your computer.  As you use your computer, your Energy Level diminishes.  As it gets lower, your mouse slows down until it gets annoyingly slow.  That’s the time to jump back on your bike.

I can think of a few people that might benefit from such a device.  🙂
