Project Vélo M²

How do you like to consume your energy ? We like to make music, we love to project movies and power 3D printers.

Find our story on facebook. We make energy with bicycles, we call it People Pedal Power. It is fun, join us !

Concept_Cargobike

The bicycle is a perfect alternative for transportation in the city. We especially use it to transport our modules on the cargo bike. Like our modules to make cinéma, the other one for 3D printing, or our pride, the energy module.

Concept_EnergyGeneration

The energy module makes electricity out of bicycles on rollers. It buffers and it transforms into nice 230V AC. This makes it possible to have energy in the places where you meet people on the bicycle, like parks and other public spaces.

Do you wish to give an ecological touch to you event ?

Our Vélo M² project has many possibilities in the themes of soft mobility, renewable energy and social cohesion.

Our project makes it possible to generate electricity with the help of ordinary bicycles. With this 100% green energy we can power any event :

  • Open-air cinéma, where 4 bikes provide the energy for projecting a film;
  • Sound systems, electrical tools, charging cellphones… the limit is the number of people on the pedals;
  • A mobile 3D fablab, where we design and print 3D objects for bicycle applications;
  • Coffee bar, serving coffee on the cargo bike in public spaces;
  • A promo stand, being a mobile promo desk for addressing people on events;

Open Source Hardware

One of our values is to share what we learn by making our projects open sourced following the principles of Open Source Hardware with our partner in crime OpenFab.
