I thought the Rooftop Cinema in HK was fun participatory cinema until I heard about the Cycle-in Cinema! On December 2 and 3, 2012, Magnificent Revolution is featuring a portable pedal powered cinema system at Detour, an offshoot of Business of Design Week, and is inviting the public to participate. Get on your bikes and start cycling because the more you spin, the more power you generate to run the cinema! It kind of reminds me of Triplets of Belleville, an old animated film where a Tour de France cyclist is kidnapped to compete in a simulated black market bike race, but how fun! Actually, would be really funny if that were the film they chose to show.

Magnificent Revolution is also offering free workshops to teach the public how to make their own bicycle powered energy system! It's all part of USE LESS at the Detour HK Design Showcase.
