Wind Driven Rickshaw

Sure, rickshaws are a pretty romantic way to get around, unless you're the driver trying to pedal some hefty tourists around town. Then, methinks, the romance is lost on you. Enter, the wind assisted rickshaw. Developed by a professor in a neighboring town in Nepal,this device adds pedal power via a windmill that is attached to a side mounted gear, making it a little easier for the driver to save his energy. Cool! See the video here.

  1. looks like it'd work snappy in a tailwind, but this guy has to drive in different directions, right? :)
