Take a moment and consider the amount of electricity it takes for a band to use all of their instruments. From the microphone to the electric guitar, everything seems to need a little power.
Sean Stevens has completely unplugged the traditional band set, and plugged them into some self-generated power. Known as Sustainable Sound, his project generates electricity through solar and petal power. WBUR.org has a more on this innovative power source.
â€œThereâ€™s one bench that has three bikes mounted to it,â€ he explained, â€œand three people sit on it and pedal. Then thereâ€™s two individual benches that each have one pedaling station on it, and that will be wired into a central box that manages and stores the power and things like that.â€
The pedal-power is harnessed by small generators attached to each bolted-down bike frame.
â€œInstead of the back wheel you have one of these generators,â€ Stevens said, rotating a pedal with his hand, â€œand itâ€™s like a hybrid car has electric motors and if you use them to slow down they generate electricity, which you can then use later.â€
Stevens said one person can sustain about 100 watts without breaking too much of a sweat. Five people can amass enough wattage to power a small live show.
