Do I over post this?

The Innovate or Die Pedal-Powered Machine Contest is designed to inspire innovation and environmental change by highlighting the benefits of cycling in an unprecedented way. The challenge is to invent and build machines that transform zero-emission human energy into new and useful purposes, one pedal stroke at a time. Entries are self-documented and submitted in a video format detailing machine, function and purpose. To register for the contest, see entry details at innovate-or-die.com. The last day for submission is Saturday, December 15th, 2007.

It says "invent an unheard - of, unprecedented pedal-powered machine, build it and film it. Just make sure that all energy generated has human pedal-power as its original source. You may ride solo or build with a team of up to five minds."

So do you have to ride it with your feet on the pedals or can you use your hands and other body parts too?

It doesn't say you can't use other body parts, but whatever it is should depend primarily on pedal power. Read Official Rules at http://www.innovate-or-die.com/

So now, if you care to go to the home page, you'll find the winner there or at http://inventorspot.com/articles/innova ... inner_9976. I got the information up in less than an hour from when it was announced, so hopefully, you can say you read it here first!
