Treadmill morphs into a vehicle

Craft & Design Energy & Sustainability Furniture & Lighting

The “Speed Fit” is a human powered treadmill system that allows you to run on a stationary platform while your motion drives a small electric powered gear system below to actually propel you across a flat surface. This might be the 2000s version of the Flintstone’s car although we wonder why they are not just running on the pavement itself?

    Why? Because even poor people can run on the sidewalk!
    Seriously, it’s a pretty cool hack. Perhaps if they waterproof the drive train and but put a bubble around it for jogging in the rain, and then they’ll have something. Not sure what, but something.

    My brain stack just overflowed. I never did get the hang of recursion.

    If only it had a bicycle rig adapter that you could strap down, so you could pedal a stationary bike…that would turn the treadmill…that would propel the machine. (Maybe I should submit MY patent now and start soliciting for investors?)
