In addition to using time to exercise after get off work, Acer’s newly released eKinekt BD 3 Cool Riding desk on the eve of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2023) is an interesting new choice, allowing you to step on a bicycle to exercise while working, and Generate clean electricity to charge your work devices, are you ready to do it?

eKinekt BD 3 has a wide desktop, it is not a problem to put a laptop, mouse, mobile phone, etc., and there is plenty of work space.

The biggest highlight is that when the user steps on the pedal, the kinetic energy can be converted into electricity.

According to Acer’s official statement, if you continue to pedal at 60RPM for 1 hour, you can generate about 75 watts of electricity.

Output power through the 2 USB Type-A and 1 USB Type-C ports on the desktop to charge devices such as laptops and mobile phones.

There is an LED kinetic energy conversion indicator on the rear of the eKinekt BD 3, which lights up when the pedal is turned, indicating that kinetic energy is being converted into electricity.

If you convert the 75 watts of electricity into kilowatt-hours and plug them into the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalent Calculator.

It is equivalent to the carbon emissions saved by walking about 212 meters instead of driving a fuel car.

Specifically, the iPhone 13 Pro Max can be fully charged in about 90 minutes with a 30W fast charge.

Acer has updated a number of product lines at CES 2023, among which the eKinekt BD 3 is the most eye-catching.

Chairman Chen Junsheng revealed that after the internal market survey, it was found that the two major customer groups were most interested.

The first is the coffee shop operator, which provides customers with the power to use their own feet, and the second is the homestay operator, which can be placed in the room as fitness equipment.

Acer has actively invested in environmental protection and sustainability since launching the Earthion project in 2021. In the same year, it further launched the Vero series of products to attract consumers to buy.

This time, the working table and structural protective shell of the cool riding table are made of post-consumer recycled plastic.

It looks similar to the Vero series and is also in line with Acer’s spirit of environmental sustainability.

The concept of eKinekt BD 3 is not the first of Acer’s. Foreign airports and train stations already have similar equipment for passengers to use.

However, under the strategy of pursuing environmental protection and sustainability and multiple business engines, major PC manufacturers have.

With the launch of this cool and healthy product, Acer claims that it can give users a sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
