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.

Electric Transport Alone Will Not Get Us to Climate Targets
Electric Transport Alone Will Not Get Us to Climate Targets

Climate change has been an issue of global concern for a long time now, with governments and experts holding conventions and deliberations on ways to reduce carbon emissions, the main cause of climate change. This need to reduce carbon emissions has seen the world shift to cleaner energy sources, which has paved the way for the invention of electric transport such as electric cars. But while cleaner automobiles and trains will play a part in reducing carbon emissions and mitigating climate change, they are just a small part of what needs to be done.

For many, swimming is a pleasurable past-time activity that helps them relax and unwind after a tough day or week of work. On the surface, swimming might seem like a low-intensity activity that involves just the use of arms and legs to wade through the water. However, that is not entirely true, as swimming is a full-body workout that involves most muscles in the body, and has other perks.
With E-bikes Booming, Are Their Batteries a Threat to Our Environment?
With E-bikes Booming, Are Their Batteries a Threat to Our Environment?

For many years, many economies of the world have been dependent on fossil fuels as their primary source of energy. This heavy reliance on fossil fuels has had a toll on the environment. We have observed drastic changes in climatic patterns resulting from global warming, due to high levels of carbon emissions from engines running on fossil fuels. This has led to the adoption of electricity as a more environmentally friendly alternative source of energy.

We have had a boom in the number of people using E-bikes in the recent past. What makes these bikes unique is the fact that they run on an electric motor powered by lithium-ion batteries.

With this influx of E-bikes, the main question is whether or not these lithium-ion batteries can sustainably meet our energy needs.
