It's a handy way for internet addicts to get fit: the faster you pedal, the faster your internet goes. The fitness possibilities are wonderful.

It's an exercise bike, with sensors on the pedals, connected to an Arduino and a laptop running Ubuntu with wondershaper.

Serious kudos to Matt Gray - he did all the tough hardware hacking, I just got the software working. And provided the bike.
