Innovative Bike Doubles As Washing Machine To Clean Your Clothes As You Exercise

1

For anyone that loathes laundry but loves biking, the design students at Dalian Nationalities University in China have a compromise to make the chore more enjoyable. Their creation, aptly-called the Bike Washing Machine (or BiWa for short), combines the two activities into one stationary device. A washing machine drum is ingeniously integrated into the wheel of a bike that cleans your clothes as you pedal.

According to the students who created BiWa, the way it works is simple: “When you ride this bike, the pedaling motion causes the drum of the washing machine to rotate,” they write on Tuvie.

At the same time, the extra electricity generated can be used to power the display screen or stored for future rides.
