Speedfit Treadmobile: The next gen Flintstones car

Posted in Personal Transport by Conner Flynn on March 26th, 2009


Speedfit is a human-powered mobile treadmill invented by Olympic medalist Alex Astilean. Much like Fred Flintstone’s old rod, it uses people power to get it moving. The only real difference is that Fred’s feet no longer have to meet the road.

The version in the video is a one or two person model, but Alex wants to create a public transportation version of the treadmobile that will allow a large crowd to power their own mass transit. Sure, it looks silly, but I’m guessing it’s a hell of a workout.

He just needs to make it flashier so that when two meet up on an open road, they can race. The winner is the one that avoids a heart attack. Pretty cool exercise idea.
