Our twist on the pedal-powered smoothie

We finally finished the pedal-powered smoothie maker. We wanted to build a smoothie maker that was not mechanically attached to a bicycle like tradition smoothie makers; rather ours relies on a generator to motor principle which means that even kids as young as five can attach their own bike to the generator. There is an acrylic panel at the front so that kids can see what’s going on inside. We tested it today at Tim's daughter's birthday party and it went down a storm, smoothies just taste better when you 'make' them yourself!
