Build my own laptop generator (treadmill or pedal-powered)?

Ok, someone please explain to me:  why do even my ecolo/Green friends laugh at me when I express my desire to write using a pedal-powered generator, or even a treadmill or walking powered electricity generator for my laptop?   This should not be that difficult.

In fact, I’m sure I read somewhere of an author who wrote her 2nd novel using a pedal-powered laptop.

So has anyone else done this, and how can I do it?

Edit: 15.1.12016 HE: It has been done before:

Human-Powered Treadmill

(So it’s not a lost cause, after all…)

Blackout: Demain il sera trop tard (short review: ShiraDestinie JonesLANDRAC: English, French)

Read from July 10 to 17, 2015
Blackout est un thriller qui donne un vision des sombres possibilités mais aussi qu’inspire l’espoir. Le réalisme effrayant du comportement humain est visible, mais la coopération et aussi visible. Pourtant, je ne voudrais jamais prendre un ascenseur autre fois !

Blackout is a thriller that gives a vision of terrible possibilities, but also inspires hope. The frightening reality of human behavior, but also of cooperation, are both visibme. Still, I hope never to take an elevator again!
