Wash your dirty laundry while simultaneously exercising!

Bike-Washing-Machine-1

Sometimes is hard to find time to exercise because of housework, but this piece of gym equipment gives you the opportunity to do two things at once: wash your laundry and get fit. This bike was developed by Chinese designers and it incorporates a washing machine within its front wheel, thus also saving space. When you start pedaling, it makes the drum to rotate, just like a conventional washing machine. However, the designers failed to mention if the bike will automatically fill and drain with water.

  • The Bike Washing Machine replaces the front wheel with a washing drum

The bike includes a generator which produces electricity that you can store for later, therefore being cost-effective. Its generator could become a reliable supply of energy if you live in an area without access to it.

Bike-Washing-Machine-3

At the Dalian Nationalities University, students are building a prototype of this bike. They said: Riding a bike is a popular exercise, but washing laundry is something that you might do on daily basis or at least once a week, unless you keep buying new clothes and underwear, so why not combine them into a single useful equipment/appliance?

A similar device was developed in 2011 by Richard Hewitt, a design student at Sheffield Hallam University.

Jog and wash at the same time!

If this device didn’t convince you, maybe one that combines a treadmill with a washing machine will do that.
This hamster wheel looking machine features a series of wash tubs enclosed within a large rotating wheel, which also generates electricity. A South Korean designer, named Si Hyeong Ryu, proposed this concept for the 2014 Electrolux Design Lab competition.

    How do you fill it with water and drain the water?

  11. Britt says:

    They had bicycles in the WW2 that were wired to generate electricity. Why not put prisoners on bicycles to generate power! Let them do something useful or create a laundry and earn money to run the prison instead of using taxes from honest people!
