Bike Washing Machine

Amanda Froelich | True Activist

Chores, chores, chores. Some days, it feels like the list is never-ending, and the motivation to accomplish the mundane tasks depleted.

But now, thanks to an invention designed by students in China, you can check exercise and laundry washing off your to-do list.


The Bike Washing Machine (or BiWa, as the students have dubbed it) is a human-powered washing machine that encourages you to multitask and conserve water while boosting your fitness in a fun, efficient way.

Bike_1

The innovative bike – which has not yet hit markets – was designed by students at Dalian Nationalities University in China.

The pedals help spin and rotate the front wheel, which is actually a clothing drum. And, any excess energy created by burning off calories is used to power a display screen that keeps the cyclist aware of the wash cycle’s progress.

When your kids or your hubby have excess energy to burn off, have them cycle, too, as excess energy can be stored for a subsequent use.

The most common complaint today is that people just ‘don’t have enough time.’ This neat invention not only frees up extra minutes, it inspires you to get active while completing household chores.

And, for college students and families on a budget, the bike can save money long-term as there are fewer trips to the laundromat as well as less time spent trekking across town.

      Do you have to pedal backwards and forwards really fast to get that swishing action? How long is the spin cycle? Do you add the fabric softener through the handle bars?
