There’s now a bike washing machine that washes your clothes as you pedal
Students in China have designed a bike that washes your clothes when you pedal.
The aptly named Bike Washing Machine, or BiWa, aims to “bring health and convenience” together.
According to Tuvie, the description given by the young designers from the Dalian Nationalities University, the way it works is pretty straightforward: “When you ride this bike, the pedalling motion causes the drum of the washing machine to rotate, at the same time, the superfluous electricity is generated which can be used to power the display screen or stored for future use.”
Whether or not we’ll be seeing lines of these bikes in the shops is yet to be decided – but judging by the size of that drum, it’s unlikely to replace your standard washing machine any time soon.
