Bike Washing Machine

Wash your clothes with your own pedal power with the conceptual Bike Washing Machine. Aimed at reducing our carbon footprint through wasted energy, the bike washing machine combines athleticism with ingenuity to keep your clothes clean with a cardio workout.

The concept came from students at Dalian Nationalities University in China, who’ve shared their findings on the design site Tuvie. Just load your dirty laundry into the machine’s drum, add the appropriate amount of water and detergent, and pedal away. As you do so, the drum rotates, tumbling the clothes all while a small display screen tracks the experience. Now while the idea of breaking a sweat while doing laundry may seem overly arduous and unnecessary to some, those in remote, areas with little access to electricity could easily benefit from such a self-sufficient device. Now, all they need is a separate bike that’s powered to dry the clothes.
