Harvesting Energy from Humans....but not like the Matrix

All Exercise Gyms should have exercise equipment that when used generates electricity. Every Home should have an exercise machine that generates electricity and stores that electrical energy in Batteries to run appliances.  Energy Monitoring
People can also educate themselves at the same time if they have monitors in front of them that provides free education and tutoring. You can also provide information and knowledge about exercising and nutrition and even connect them with a personal trainer. This way you can have another good reason to exercise, with one being that you're learning something new each time. Multitasking at its finest. And if you also let them see how much energy they produce this will also be another great incentive. Humans are the most effective, natural and renewable energy resource on the planet, we can also be repurposed. And with that many options and benefits, not even oil can compete with humans. We simply can produce more without all those negative side effects. Beat that big oil, or Coal, or natural gas, or Nuclear. The Sun is our only true contender.

Energy Harvesting is the process by which energy is derived from external sources (e.g., solar power, thermal energy, wind energy, salinity gradients, and kinetic energy, also known as ambient energy), captured, and stored for small, wireless autonomous devices, like those used in wearable electronics and wireless sensor networks.

Human Power is work or energy that is produced from the human body. It can also refer to the power (rate of work per time) of a human. Power comes primarily from muscles, but body heat is also used to do work like warming shelters, food, or other humans.

What's better an Alternator or a Generator Elliptical?

Alternator is an Electrical Generator that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy in the form of alternating current. For reasons of cost and simplicity, most alternators use a rotating Magnetic Field with a stationary armature. Occasionally, a linear alternator or a rotating armature with a stationary magnetic field is used. In principle, any AC electrical generator can be called an alternator, but usually the term refers to small rotating machines driven by automotive and other internal combustion engines. An alternator that uses a permanent magnet for its magnetic field is called a Magneto, which is an electrical generator that uses permanent magnets to produce periodic pulses of alternating current. Alternators in power stations driven by steam turbines are called turbo-alternators. Large 50 or 60 Hz three phase alternators in power plants generate most of the world's electric power, which is distributed by electric power grids.

Exercise motions or Elliptical Trainers that could drive a generator and produce electricity, like Bicycle Dynamos. There is also Piezoelectric and Kinetic Energy that can be tapped for energy. Static Electricity can be in excess of 10,000 volts, but because of a low amperage it's harmless! And the person who is exercising and generating energy gets energy credits that can be used towards their energy bill. Not a bad incentive for a strong and healthy body.

Transmission refers to a gearbox that uses gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a rotating power source to another device. (power transmission system)
Gear Train are gear teeth designed to ensure the pitch circles of engaging gears roll on each other without slipping, providing a smooth transmission of rotation from one gear to the next.
Epicyclic Gearing consists of two gears mounted so that the center of one gear revolves around the center of the other. A carrier connects the centers of the two gears and rotates to carry one gear, called the planet gear, around the other, called the sun gear. The planet and sun gears mesh so that their pitch circles roll without slip. A point on the pitch circle of the planet gear traces an epicycloid curve. In this simplified case, the sun gear is fixed and the planetary gear(s) roll around the sun gear.

Electrophysiology is the study of the electrical properties of biological cells and tissues. It involves measurements of voltage change or electric current on a wide variety of scales from single ion channel proteins to whole organs like the heart. In neuroscience, it includes measurements of the electrical activity of neurons, and particularly action potential activity. Recordings of large-scale electric signals from the nervous system, such as electroencephalography, may also be referred to as electrophysiological recordings. They are useful for electrodiagnosis and monitoring.
Magnetometer measures the magnetization of a magnetic material like a ferromagnet, or to measure the strength and, in some cases, the direction of the magnetic field at a point in space.

Kirlian Photography is a collection of photographic techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges. electrography", "electrophotography", "corona discharge photography" (CDP), "bioelectrography", "gas discharge
visualization (GDV)","electrophotonic imaging (EPI)", and, in Russian literature, "Kirlianography".
Corona Discharge is an electrical discharge brought on by the ionization of a fluid surrounding a conductor that is electrically charged. Spontaneous corona discharges occur naturally in high-voltage systems unless care is taken to limit the electric field strength. The corona will occur when the strength (potential gradient) of the electric field around a conductor is high enough to form a conductive region, but not high enough to cause electrical breakdown or arcing to nearby objects. It is often seen as a bluish (or other color) glow in the air adjacent to pointed metal conductors carrying high voltages, and emits light by the same property as a gas discharge lamp. Corona discharge is a process by which a current flows from an electrode with a high potential
into a neutral fluid, usually air, by ionizing that fluid so as to create a region of plasma around the electrode. The ions generated eventually pass charge to nearby areas of lower potential, or recombine to form neutral gas molecules.
Biophoton are photons of light in the ultraviolet and low visible light range that are produced by a biological system. They are non-thermal in origin, and the emission of biophotons is technically a type of bioluminescence, though bioluminescence is generally reserved for higher luminance luciferin/luciferase systems. The term biophoton used in this narrow sense should not be confused with the broader field of biophotonics, which studies the general interaction of light with biological systems.
Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. It is a form of chemiluminescence. Bioluminescence occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi, microorganisms including some bioluminescent bacteria and terrestrial invertebrates such as fireflies. In some animals, the light is produced by symbiotic organisms such as Vibrio bacteria. Photosynthesis
Chemiluminescence is the emission of light (luminescence), as the result of a chemical reaction.
Phosphorescence s a specific type of photoluminescence related to fluorescence. Unlike fluorescence, a phosphorescent material does not immediately re-emit the radiation it absorbs.

Fluorescence is the emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light or other electromagnetic radiation. It is a
form of luminescence. LED'S
Luminescence is emission of light by a substance not resulting from heat; it is thus a form of cold-body radiation. It can
be caused by chemical reactions, electrical energy, subatomic motions, or stress on a crystal.
Sonoluminescence is the emission of short bursts of Light from imploding bubbles in a liquid when excited by sound.

Endocochlear Potential is the positive voltage of 80-100mV seen in the cochlear endolymphatic spaces.Within the cochlea the EP varies in the magnitude all along its length. When a sound is presented, the endocochlear potential changes either positive or negative in the endolymph, depending on the stimulus. The change in the potential is called the summating potential.

Do our Cells have more negative potassium ions inside the cell and less positive sodium ions outside the cell? Our bodies are huge masses of atoms, so does this mean that we can generate electricity? Everything is made up of atoms, and atoms are made up of protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons have a positive charge, neutrons have a neutral charge, and electrons have a negative charge. When these charges are out of balance, an atom becomes either positively or negatively charged. The switch between one type of charge and the other allows electrons to flow from one atom to another. This flow of electrons, or a negative charge, is what we call electricity.
