If you live in a house full of cyclists, the washing machine is on non-stop, but, what if you could train indoors whilst rinsing your smalls? Well, with a bit of crowd funding the Bike Washing Machine could be the answer to burnt out motors and frazzled circuit boards. It makes perfect sense to me…
Bike Washing Machine, from the name of this project you would already know what it is. This project combines 2 activities into one. Riding a bike is a popular exercise, washing laundry is something that you might do on daily basis or at least once a weak (unless you keep buying new clothes and underwear), so why not combine them into a single useful equipment/appliance?
Bike Washing Machine combines a stationary bicycle and washing machine, you can exercise while at the same time simultaneously washing your clothes. When you ride this bike, the pedaling 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.
