So you need to do some laundry and feel like getting some exercise in at the same time? Then what you need is the Hula Washer.
It’s a design concept by Sang-soon Lee that basically combines a washing machine and a hula hoop. Not a very compatible-sounding combination, is it? But somehow Lee managed to make it work.
Basically, the Hula Washer washes the dirty laundry that you’ve managed to stuff into the narrow hoop. The Washer then uses the energy you provide as you spin the hoop around your waist. It’s interesting in the sense that it combines two activities to help you make the most of your time.
But I see two main problems. The first one being the fact that you’ll probably only be able to fit socks and hand towels into that Washer. And second? It just isn’t very practical. Tthere’s no hula hoop dryer to go with it either.
Nonetheless, it’s interesting and happens to be a 2012 Electrolux Design Lab Entry.
