Who wouldn’t want a value-for-money home cinema set up for Christmas? Here’s one you can power with your bicycle. The perfect present for someone who loves movies and loves to ride.

Engineers without Borders  are a student-led charity who aim to remove barriers to development using engineering. In Spring 2015 they began building a bike powered cinema to enable them to screen films carbon-neutrally and teach other students and the wider community about energy production and sustainable development.
