Your employer probably wants you to work your ass off to earn some monies, and then you spend some of that dough for a gym membership to burn some fat off your ass. Acer will save you that gym fee with the eKinekt BD 3, the unholy child of a desk and exercise bike.
It costs $999 – roughly 82,548 Indian Rupees aka almost enough to buy a Playstation 5 from the black market – and goes on sale in June. The idea is simple. Work-from-home warriors are lazy as heck, and the only exercise they do is type furiously on a keyboard.
The poorly-named eKinekt BD 3 thingy will at least keep your legs toned. Acer's creation will have you exercise in two positions, depending on how much of a hardcore human you are.
But here's the neat part. You produce electricity when you pedal. About 75 watts, per hour. Take that, Tesla!
That electrical energy is harnessed to charge the laptops and phones on the desk. Yep, it has a couple of USB-A and a single USB-C port on top. There's also a mug holder to host your beer or sugar bomb soda, and a bag holder, too.
My doctor friend tells me – a certified couch lover – that this machine is a good idea, and that I should buy it. We're no longer friends, as of this night.
For real though, get some exercise done. It's good. Interested? I wrote more words about Acer's angelic creation here!
