Human-Powered Grill Makes You Work for Your Food

A tech-savvy Japanese youtuber recently unveiled a special grill that requires users to actually burn some calories to power up the device and cook the meat.

Japanese youtuber Bomb_tamio specializes in wacky inventions that put a smile on viewers faces, but his latest creations actually intrigued a lot of people, especially those looking for creative ways to lose weight. In a video posted last month, the young inventor can be seen preparing to cook strips of bacon on an electric grill, only instead of turning it on via its knob, he starts running in place with one foot over a yellow pad. It’s this fast movement that powers the grill, so the user needs to keep moving until the meat is cooked.

In his showcase clip, Bomb_tamio need only cook some thin strips of bacon, but if you’re going for a more serious steak, you’ll need to put in some physical work, which means burning some calories while getting ready to consume some more. It may not help you lose weight, but at least you’ll get some exercise out of it.

The only downside to this human-powered grill is the noise. If you live in an apartment, the neighbors downstairs may not appreciate the constant stomping, especially if you plan on grilling lots of food.
