When you’re working with villages in the middle of undeveloped countries, you need to be creative with how you make and develop power.

One group is taking that creativity to a whole new level with the experimentation of a cow-powered generator to keep laptops charged. The power system uses an array of belts and pulleys off of an old Fiat while the cows provide all the driving power needed to push the other parts.

While the cow-power source isn’t for every situation and is probably for very few, it is something you can turn to if you’re finding that solar or wind power just isn’t getting you through.
