What a fantastic week! We've been so grateful to have all of you join us in making AMPY a reality.

With over 1500 backers, we've now pledged to burn 150,000 calories! So far, we've made it through about 20,000. We've been moving in all sorts of ways, wearing AMPY during our activities and taking our AMPYs back to the lab to check how much we've generated.

Here are some of the ways you suggested we burn calories, along with the amount of battery life we generated. If you have an idea of how we should move, let us know!

No matter how you move, AMPY gives you power!

Love,

Team AMPY

      Hi Ampy,

      Is this update the "product demonstration" that you referred to in your comment from October 15 or will you be producing another update soon that actually shows your product generating energy?

      Given that you are at Northwestern University, I recommend fielding a test unit with the Marching Band for a practice. :-)

      The only thing even better it will be for it to be water proof, so I could use it while swimming.

      I am in a wheelchair and I would love to see how much wheeling around charges with Ampy
