Hybrid Rickshaw

We’ve always loved eco-friendly transport. However, an (even more) eco-friendly rickshaw is a new concept even to us. However, that is exactly what one pedicab driver in Nepal has had put together.

Admittedly he hasn’t done it for eco reasons; purely to ease the strain on his legs. But the concept is brilliant anyway. The windmill itself was designed by a Professor in the next village and built from a steel drum. It also only works with a tail wind, but it’s a small issue…

Brilliant video on the invention below:
