Good uses for pedals – footbiking, once removed

We happily do without pedals, seats and the like on footbikes, but they can be put to good use (other than on bicycles, which are not completely invalid).

A few intellectual neocolonialists at MIT have nevertheless come up with some fine gizmos powered by pedals. That they are thinking primarily of Guatemala (whither Appalachia – or New York, for that matter?) is beside the point, and just churlish of me to bring up.
