Playpulse - Q-inc

Designed and engineered with Q assistance, the Playpulse fitness bike gamifies workouts

The problem

Playpulse developed an innovative stationary bike that combined exercise with interactive 3D gaming for consumers of all ages. The bike, however, was an early prototype that was not ready for manufacturing as a consumer product and needed a complete design overhaul.

The Q Design solution

Our team worked with Playpulse and the Industrial Design partner to completely redesign the bike from scratch and develop a sleek new model that would appeal to consumers and fit beautifully into the home. Q Design led the engineering, prototyping and manufacturing of the bike and worked with the CM for production.

The icing on the cake

Q Design helped Playpulse raise funding in its Seed Round and has a position on its Board of Directors to help steer the strategy of the company.
