Redesigning the exercise machine experience.

Hi there, we’re Team Five Guys! Though there are actually only three of us guys (Roland, Mike, and Andy), we’re very excited about embarking on this project.

A little clarification: we’re a part of the Fall 2009 class of Human Factors and Interface Design (HFID), an advanced design course at Olin College of Engineering. The goal of HFID is to explore how people use the interfaces that lie all around us. The crux of this experience is a group project on some particular area—and that’s why you’re here.

Team Five Guys’s goal is to investigate how people use treadmills and propose a new interface that improves exercisers’ experiences. Here, we’ll keep you posted on what we’ve learned and what we’ve thought about towards reaching this goal. Mmm...tasty.
