Abstract/Artist Statement

This project’s focus was around the creation of an underwater mechanism that allows for swimming coaches to film their athletes from under the water in order to better analyze and improve their technique. Objectives were created that would ensure the final product would be suitable for use by both elite swimmers and beginners alike. The products ability to be user-friendly and cost effective was also of paramount concern as all other similar options on the market are large, difficult to transport, and expensive. Through many iterations of the design process, a final design was created that would allow for all of the main objectives to be met except for the system’s ability to be submerged underwater; this could be easily rectified if an affordable motor was available and the project is a success in demonstrating a proof of concept for the design idea.
