Meeting of the Minds

Last week marked the official end of our SURG project. We set up our poster in the Kirr Commons, propped up the bike against the stools displaying our laptops and answered people’s questions about our project (all while competing with the noise of the Vibratron close by).

Yes, judging by this awkward picture, we belong at CMU. We had applied for some competitions, but due to our lack of testing the bike, many of our answers to their questions fell short. But hey, at least we finished. Ethan put together a great poster and we both had our laptops out to display videos of the bike in action and photos of our process.

And here is the actual bike, which we realized we never took a picture of. We slapped on new handle bars (bullhorns, aww yeaah), new pedals, and painted the seat black. Note the red on/off button at the tip of the right handlebar- Ethan and my favorite part.

Cheers! Look forward the final video which should be up in the next couple days.
