It takes about 30 bothersome minutes to charge the average iPhone fully from a percentage of 0 to 100. Coincidentally, the recommended daily dosage of exercise for the average person (who doesn’t routinely do so) is half an hour. Patricia Ceysens, the brainchild of WeWatt transformed her personal development of a cycling desk into a rising enterprise. As most of us do, Ceyens found her work routine governing her schedule resulting in the restriction of time she had to do other activities such as essential exercising.

Although desks that are engineered to include a way to convert energy from kinetic to mechanical to electrical are fairly new on the tech scene, the idea of converting energy in such as a way dates back to electromagnetic-hand cranked generators. Companies such as WeWatts introduces an innovative and fun way to multitask between the complexities of the 21st century. Complexities such as being anxious while waiting for something to charge or seeking exercise while in a workplace environment.

WeBikes provide more than just a solution to charging and exercise, they may possibly aid in focusing and “improving the quality of work” states Katarina Verhaegen the engineer who spearheaded the current development of the Bike. Taking into consideration that these bikes are frequently utilized in public spaces such as parks, libraries and hotels, the company believes they can introduce them into the realm of ground-breaking office interiors. “There are studies proving that gentle exercise while doing computer work, you're more focused and more creative. Reading and memorizing speed is enhanced. For productivity, and creativity, it's really good to do this” Verhaegan also states after acknowledging the commonplace doubt of being able to multitask efficiently.

Locally manufactured, the WeWatts prides itself in its clear-cut moral compass; the company also employs locals with disabilities in its manufacturing plants. Seen as a definite advantage from a business point of view, Verheagen explains that not only would outsourcing manufacturing be inefficient but difficult, as they produce a steady amount of client’s custom demands.
