Cow Power for Laptops in Indian Villages

There are several ways to create the electricity to charge up OLPC Laptops, but this Indian DIY project to harness the power of cows is a clever one. Might scale up to be a village electric utility (after all, having the cowpower of 2-3 cows is very roughly around one horsepower which is almost 750 Watts or the equivalent of 5-10 people pedaling bicycle-generators)...
