Project Details

The Premise of the project was to create an interactive recharging station by utilizing human power. With a donated elipitical machine the design looked to alter the main motion of the machine to harvest the kinetic energy created. The final design utilized footpedals and linear motion rails to use the existing setup, and added an interactive element also powered by the machine.
