We are looking for innovative designs for a rowing machine which can adjust in height/incline, the rowing bar will be of stretchable rubber which must be able to be adjusted to increase the difficulty, the seat must be wide and very comfortable with a high back and neck rest. The seat and the back/neck rest must also be able to be adjustable to various angles. At the top back of the seat there has to be pulleys and ropes which is linked to the seat so people can do chest exercises by pulling themselves up the rowing machine slider. The seat should also have arm rests which are big enough to work with a computer mouse and on the same (main bar) that the seat is sliding on there must be an flat aluminium workspace for a laptop that moves along with the seat so people can do work and row at the same time..
Finally to make things interesting the machine must be able to fold up into a briefcase shape using this aluminium workspace platform as the 2 sides of the briefcase.
The prize will be awarded for the most creative design and we recommend people that have worked with suppliers of mechanical equipment sign up for this task as it is also important to design based on components that are readily available where possible to drive down costs. Any additional things that you can think of to add extra excersize options will add to your advantage to win the competition. Finally the machine must be able to hold a person up to 200kg.
