Acer has unveiled an innovative bike desk that charges your laptop while you pedal and work.

Acer has launched the eKinekt BD 3 bike desk that allows users to simultaneously work and exercise while also generating their own clean electricity.

The eKinekt BD 3 converts the kinetic energy from the rider’s pedalling into an electric charge that powers the machine. One hour of constant cycling at 60 revolutions per minute (RPM) on the bike desk can generate 75 watts of power which can then be utilised to charge laptops and other devices.

The desk can be used in two modes – in Working Mode, the desk surface moves closer to the chair to let riders sit in an upright position while typing and pedalling. While in Sports Mode, the desk top sits further forward, giving users more room to lean in, similar to the position on a standard bike or trainer.

Users can seamlessly adjust the bike’s resistance, seat and desk height based on preferred placement for added flexibility and comfort.

The eKinekt also has a user-friendly companion app that provides real-time information to check the user’s riding duration, distance, speed, etc.

The device is equipped with two USB Type-A ports and one USB Type-C port, a bag hook and a beverage holder for added convenience.

As part of its long-term commitment to empower sustainability, the eKinekt BD 3’s desktop and the casing that protects the bike’s components are made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic.✤
