Using eliptical trainers over the years this idea has occurred to me more than once. We expend a lot of energy while on these machines that essentially is waisted, and lost in the air. What these drawings hope to illustrate is how this wasted kenetic energy can be used instead to power a scooter-type vehicle. I imagine that the peddle mechanism and “drive train” stays more or less the same, but the back wheel would no longer be raised off the ground and would act as the driving force for the vehicle that I call HumanMove™.
