Generate your own electricity on the SportsArt Verde treadmill

Personal Mobility
[MUSIC] All right, got to stretch out because I'm going to get on the Verde treadmill by Sportsart. Now, it might look like a run of the mill treadmill but get this, this is the world's first treadmill that uses your movement to create useable electricity. Now, did I mention there's no motor on this? It's self-powered. I am the self and I make this move. If I start slowing down, this starts slowing down. There's actually a system of brakes that keeps your pace going at the right speed. So if I start speeding up [BLANK_AUDIO] it's going to try to slow me down a little bit. Kind of a very interesting feel when you're doing this. [BLANK_AUDIO] So as you're running on this, you can see how much electricity you're generating on the top. If you kept your current pace for an hour, you can see how much Watts you'd generate. It was first introduced in March of last year as a concept, but now it's in production. Instead of a belt, you've got slats as your running surface. The Verde is at a slight, fixed incline. I'm gonna hit the stop button to see how much electricity I've made by running. [BLANK_AUDIO] You might be thinking, okay, so this thing's harnessed my energy, how do I get that electricity? The company tells me, now I never knew about this, when you plug this device into a wall, you're generating electricity that is available To other devices in your home. So technically you are lowering your load. Now it's not sending it back to the grid or anything, unless you have special equipment. So in theory, if you have this plugged in and you are running, and you've got a coffee maker on the other plug. Guess what? You're actually powering the coffee maker just slightly. You're just lightening the load. Which is a very weird concept. Also there is as usb port on this so if you want to charge your phone you could. But don't worry if your not running it'll still work. Theres also a select mode. You can hit push. What you end up doing is you'll be pushing against support. You'll be generating Electricity is like you're shoving a very heavy low and you can make the resistance higher, increases at level six and it's like you kinda pushing I don't know a hand truck or something. It is getting tired after a while yeah. See all the work I'm doing, I'm powering all of this all is energy. It's me. Now the company says that theoretically, you could produce 200 watch in an hour. How do you reach that maximum? Well, that kinda depends, it turns out it matters how heavy you are? how fast you're running? The average that figure it out if you are running about 6 to 9 miles per hour for 1 hour, you'll generate that 200 watch. If you wanna pick up the Verde by SportsArt, you better collect some green. It costs around $10,000. It's available for shipping right now, by the way. It might take a week to get it. I'm gonna go for a nice little stroll. I'm Myer Zactar, and I'll see you later. Go!
