Google and Specialized Bikes have joined forces on a new contest. They're looking for interesting new ways of channeling pedaling power. It's called Innovate or Die.

Damn, well if you put it like that, I guess I'll innovate. (NOTE: As far as the "___ or Die" trope goes, this ranks just above New Hampshire's motto but well below "Skate or Die.")

Their promotions are a little grandiose and alarmist but there are definitely interesting ways of applying pedals. This Afrigadget video, for example.
