A juicer is a tool for separating juice from fruits, herbs, leafy greens and other types of vegetables from its pulp in a process called juicing. In separating the pulp, juicers concentrate the nutrition naturally present in fruits and vegetables and allows the body to more easily absorb the nutrition than digesting the solid produce. The use of juicers also makes it easier to consume more raw produce.

Electric Juicer is very common part of our life. But , do you know how much electricity we consume while juicing! if we start using pedal powered juicers,we will not only save large amount of electricity but our body would get some exercise too.

This project idea is for mechanical  and physics students.


Is it commercial viable?

Yes , it is , in New York I have seen it implemented where customer gets discount if he pedals his juice himself.

How to build my own?

Its simple, you need to buy some old juicer(I recommend sugar cane juicer for this project) and connect it with your bicycle instead of electric motor using belt. Video shown below will give you some idea about that.
