Solar Powered Lamp Or Bicycle Art?

 

The annual Innovate or Die Contest challenges participants to use their bikes to power devices and appliances that normally rely on electric power. The gadget we have here uses the sun to powering the bike. Can we get a chain going? The sun powers the bike that powers the lamp, that powers the...?

That would be cool. But the solar panel on the Solar Bicycle Rider Lamp powers only the bike; the lamp is conventionally powered by electricity. So the Solar Bicycle Rider is more of an iconic art gadget than a real footprint lifter.

The Bicycle Rider is artfully poised to pedal when charged by the adjustable solar panel. Just place the lamp in a sunny spot. Available from Amazon.
