The launch event was unique in that it was a carbon-neutral affair – with all the energy consumed during the party being produced by the guests! People pedaled on a special bicycle generator that is attached to a dynamo and fed into the main power source. In this way, power can be created and stored in a battery bank thereby eliminating reliance on traditional power sources… how cool!
