Body-Pod parts Maker projects

Hello Makers,

Gideon emailed and he has a old Body-Pod that has some pretty cool parts that could make some great projects. All the information is below. If you want to check it out contact him directly.


My name is Gideon Weisberg, and I work at the non-profit non-profit Riekes Center in Menlo Park (mentoring in sports, fitness, the arts, music, and nature awareness). Years ago (10?) we were given a Bod-Pod to allow the fitness department to offer a (then) state-of-the-art body assessment system to low-income students, as well as the other athletes who train at our center.

While at the time this version of the Bod-Pod system ran about $50,000, it is now obsolete. It likely has lots of useful parts for a tinkering lab. I am looking for ways to find a new home for the system, and am especially interested in helping any useful parts find their way into innovative reuse or educational programs (or at least becomes somebody's weird furniture/studio prop).

Any proceeds from selling this system will go directly into our programs (the first $750 I car raise will be buying new tires for our passenger van). The Bod Pod (with it's computer station, manual, and calibration/maintenance records) can be delivered within the Bay Area.

I am open to thoughts and suggestions regarding the ultimate fate of this devise. I don't want it to go in a land-fill.
Thank you for your consideration, Gideon Weisberg[address removed]
