Bicycle-powered maize sheller
The Global Cycle Solutions organisation finds ways to use bicycles as an alternative source of power. In Tanzania, they have adapted a maize sheller so that it can be powered by bike, which greatly speeds up the process of removing maize grain from the husk. For those wanting a small business opportunity, the maize sheller can be pedalled from village to village. Other devices use bicycle power to grind maize into flour and charge mobile phone batteries.
