Leave it to a school known for its engineering and green roots to come up with this pedal powered desk!

Imagine the energy reduction, and great shape we'd be in if we each powered our laptop at home with one of these!

This is the first of several green finds from my trip home to California last week. UC Davis, my alma matter, which has been ranked along with the entire University of California system as one of the top 10 for greenest schools according to Kaplan College Guide and the 7th in greenest schools according to Hearst's TheDailyGreen.com.

But I'm sure you're more interested in this pedal powered desk:

Just plug your laptop into the outlet on the side of the machine and start pedaling!

It appears as though you could even plug in your fridge.
