Webcycle — 'The faster you pedal, the faster your internet'
From the Webcyle website:
It's a handy way for internet addicts to get fit: the faster you pedal, the faster your internet goes. The fitness possibilities are wonderful.
It's an exercise bike, with sensors on the pedals, connected to an Arduino and a laptop running Ubuntu with wondershaper.
Hardware hacking by Matt Gray, software and provision of bike by Tom Scott.
Note: For those who have been a little confused, technically this does not speed up one's internet connection. The faster one pedals, the less it limits the bandwidth.
