When was the last time that you were able to get your laundry done and get some exercise in at the same time? Never (unless you were stranded on Gilligan’s Island). That is about to change thanks to designers at China’s Dalian Nationalities University.
The Bike Washing Machine is a combination bicycle and laundry machine that lets riders exercise and wash their clothes at the same time. That’s real multi-tasking. By the time your wash is finished you will be too tuckered out to put it in the dryer. But maybe they have a solution for that too. Maybe a bed that dries your clothes while you take a nap?
The machine basically replaces the front wheel of a traditional bicycle with a washing machine drum, and as the user pedals they can power a display screen or store the generated electricity. Pretty cool. I’m not sure why we need the two put together, but I’m glad we have it. It would be perfect for an underground bunker. That way, you can stay fit during the apocalypse and also keep your clothes clean.
