ABOUT THIS PROJECT


Tell us briefly about your project. Is it a work of art or does it serve another function?

THE CRICKET IS A STEP CYCLE TRICYCLE TO EXERCISE OUTDOORS! DO THE SAME EXERCISE YOU WOULD DO IN A GYM IN A STAIR CLIMBER BUT HAVING FUN OUTSIDE! FUN EXERCISE!

When did you start working on this project and how long did it take you to complete?

I STARTED IN 2010. TOOK ME 4 YEARS!

What was your goal in building this project?

Obesity in our country is a growing problem, especially with children. my new invention will help and motivate people of all ages to exercise, having so much fun outdoors that most won’t even realize they are working out!!! Like the Recreational Buyer, the Family Man is looking for fun in the sun. He values quality family time, and might purchase multiple Crickets for the entire family to enjoy together. This kind of activity is becoming increasingly important as trends like childhood obesity and video games continue to impact young families.

Does your project help to solve a problem? If so what problem?

it will help people who do not like to be confined to the indoors, get out and exercise outside. like a gym, for example. another option of exercise for these type of people. Also a way to invite children to exercise, without knowing they are actually exercising because they are outdoors and having fun. Also a way to transport yourself to nearby places. Takes you from point A to point B.

What makes your idea unique?

The Cricket is clearly differentiated from the competition because it is intended for outdoor use. To our knowledge there are no other “stair stepper” devices that can be used outdoors. The cricket technology includes two adjustable hydraulic pistons with variable speed resistance, so you can control the intensity of your workout. The pistons can easily be removed just by removing a simple pin. If you want a regular ride on the days you are not up to an intense workout simply remove the pistons. It also folds for easy storage. vertically or horizontally.

In what capacity are you using bearings and what type of bearings?

on the wheel mechanism, and in the propulsion mechanism. I am using regular bearings.

What is the most important thing you want people to know about your project?

You will benefit from cardio workout, toning, and firming your entire lower body. All this outdoors!! In your favorite park, beach, or around your neighborhood. Everyone in your family can own one, including children!! The cricket provides excellent aerobic exercise without stressing the knees, feet and hips. Other traditional activities like jogging and bike riding have been shown to be damaging to these joints. Only the “stair stepping” motion has been proven to work the large muscles of the legs and engage the cardiovascular system to provide excellent fitness benefits without straining the knee joints. The stepping motion also triggers and reduces cellulite!!

How will you use the $5,000 prize?

I will use it to do a book of specifications for my product, to show to a manufacturer in the future.
