Child-Powered School Bus Could Prevent Obesity

Obesity in children has become an increasingly apparent concern over here in the United States. That's probably because we don't have one of these pedal-powered school buses taking our kids to school. Made by the Netharlands' De Cafe Racer, this child-powered vehicle brings an eco-friendly approach to encouraging kids to exercise. The teacher simply has to steer in the right direction while all of the children wear their sugar-filled hyperactive bodies out.

Okay, maybe this bike-bus thing isn't a school bus after all, but it does come in that iconic yellow color! Rather than a transport vehicle for school kids, this vehicle is actually a rental that can be used for a day of fun. But a bright idea such as this one could definitely be worthy of some attention here in the U.S. or other areas with notable obesity.
