• DICYCLE
  • This is a winner project of Turgutreis Government Sea Vehicle Design Contest 2011 in Turkey.
    The aim is in this project for enhancing the human activity in a way of enviromental, aesthetic, functional and
    also economical.
    Main subject is to make an economic human powered sea vehicle.
    I made this one with an inspiration of the rowing machines in the fitness centers.
    It works with a propeller which is connected to a shift that also supported by 2 ''Balance Wheels''
    at the top of the canoe. Pulling a chained handle powers the balance wheels and also rotates the
    propeller shaft. Afterwards balance wheels can support the rotation smoothly for a while in a
    limited of time.
    For steering the canoe; it can be done by the lockable foot pedals which is connected to rudder.
