Self powered?[edit]

To me self-powered would mean equipment that powered itself. Manually powered, human-powered or user-powered would all make more sense for the topic of this article. Of course we'd need reliable sources to decide but I'm hoping to motivate a search for them. Ccrrccrr (talk) 14:51, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

I agree. This title is misleading. Jojalozzo 02:01, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
I also agree. I'll make the change. -AndrewDressel (talk) 08:34, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

result was Merge

Merger proposal[edit]

I suggest merging in information from the following small articles:

The quality of this article Human-powered equipment definitely needs to be improved, and had already been tagged as such. But I think it at least has the right title, and thus is the logical place to consolidate various stub and semi-orphan articles that are unlikely to develop much on their own. I will search for and add other potential merge articles to the above list, if I find any more. Comments? --Reify-tech (talk) 14:48, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Go for it. If someone writes the saga of pedal radios later, it can always be split again. --Wtshymanski (talk) 16:25, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. As Wtshymanski said it, though Pedal radio are a nice piece of history, right now they will only benefit from the wider perspective. --Muhandes (talk) 15:07, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

added info[edit]

Green gym equipment Some equipment is designed for use in gymnasiums. Examples include cycling and treadmills by companies such as Human Dynamo, MotorGym Co Ltd, SportsArt, Ecovergence, Woodway[1][2][3][4]

Articles need to be made on the companies, and more devices are needed. (talk) 11:18, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

If we could find sources, this might be an addition; an article in "Spectrum" a year or so ago seemed to indicate that none of these gadgets generated as much energy as used by the light bulb hanging over them, so they are more of a novelty than a serious attempt at energy conservation. --Wtshymanski (talk) 16:04, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
Removed. It looks like a simple attempt at dropping links. Cantaloupe2 (talk) 11:04, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
