An eco-friendly b&b in the New Forest has unveiled its newest energy-saving initiative – a bicycle-powered television.

Guests in the “Standing Hat” room at Cottage Lodge in the village of Brockenhurst, can now keep fit, watch their favourite programmes, and do their bit for the environment using the novel device.

So I guess all the lazy people won't be watching tv tonight?

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Hi, my name is Duncan and I'm addicted to news...  Yeah, I can't help watching a bit no matter where I am.  The one exception was a whitewater rafting trip on the Green River.....a near death experience that left me yelling for MORE!!!!!!!!!!   :clap:

My husband usually turns the news on in the morning while we're getting dressed.

Aye.. I can understand watching the news, but not watching shows you follow at home.  Your own couch is best place for that.  lol

My dad watches tv the whole time while he's on vacation.  My mom reads.  This is while they are in the hotel room.  He's in his late 60's ad she just turned 60 last year.  I can see them having to do that to watch tv.  Especially since her bone marrow cancer (cancer free now) started in her hip.  I'd rather feed it quarters.  lol

So it is possible to get worn out watching TV!
