This bicycle-powered cider press would be way cool to set up outside the front door of Chatt*Lab.

Kids could come by on a lovely fall day, jump onto the bike and squeeze 
themselves some cider - while learning a little physics (mechanical advantage) 
in the process. 


This kind of thing could attract geeks like flies -- and flies like flies, too.

Perhaps the building of this bicycle-powered cider press could be Chatt*Lab's 
first IndieGoGo campaign. Hey, the video for the campaign has been made already. :-) 


There's no reason to not have a bicycle-powered cider press on the 4th Floor, too. Once 
the kids get the hang of the biking, we'll show them some other bikes where they can 
power all the lighting in the building. :-)
