The Jhai Project

The Jhai Project is an initiative to bring affordable and sustainable computing to the poorer parts of the globe. Basically it’s a low powered PC powered by a foot crank – a fabulous idea if the team can get it working.

The equipment will be powered by electricity stored in a car battery charged by “foot cranks” which are essentially bicycle wheels and pedals hooked to a small generator. The generator is connected to a car battery and the car battery is connected to the computer.
