    People have thought about it and executed, for the One Laptop Per Child project where the laptops are intended for use in places which don't have mains power: see for example http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Battery_and_power#Human_Power_Alternatives

    See also for example http://www.potenco.com/ (invented, but not yet for sale).

    When I'm doing cardio, I'm all about electronica, usually something old and familiar - Chemical Brothers, Crystal Method, MSTRKRFT, that sort of thing. Being a gamer, I usually toss in something from this place, one of the more up-tempo bits.

    I used to metal out on the weights, but ever since I smashed my last .mp3 player while on the hip abductor, weights and music just don't mix.
