Exercise AND Wash Laundry With This Amazing Eco-Friendly Bicycle...


Chores, chores, chores. Some days, it feels like the list is never-ending, and the motivation to accomplish the mundane tasks depleted. But now, thanks to an invention designed by students in China, you can check exercise and laundry washing off your to-do list.

The Bike Washing Machine (or BiWa, as the students have dubbed it) is a human-powered washing machine that encourages you to multitask and conserve water while boosting your fitness in a fun, efficient way.

The innovative bike – which has not yet hit markets – was designed by students at Dalian Nationalities University in China.

The pedals help spin and rotate the front wheel, which is actually a clothing drum. And, any excess energy created by burning off calories is used to power a display screen that keeps the cyclist aware of the wash cycle’s progress.

When your kids or your hubby have excess energy to burn off, have them cycle, too, as excess energy can be stored for a subsequent use.

The most common complaint today is that people just ‘don’t have enough time.’ This neat invention not only frees up extra minutes, it inspires you to get active while completing household chores.

And, for college students and families on a budget, the bike can save money long-term as there are fewer trips to the laundromat as well as less time spent trekking across town. Via: TrueActivist

This seems like a clever idea. I’d be interested to know how the water gets in/out of the drum. You would need to pedal at a pace that agitates the washing steadily. Too fast, and all you’re doing is spinning which will not get clothes clean.

This has to be a joke. No sign of plumbing that I can see, no heat source to heat the water. No counter rotating drum so clothes are not going to wash. Might as well just fill the sink with cold water and let them soak for an hour. As for saving time , how ? If it takes say a minute to load and programme your standard washing machine and then go and jump on your conventional exercise bike. How does this save you any time? you still have to load it. At least with a conventional washing machine you can leave it washing while you go outside for a run, getting fresh air and exercise. 🙂

    It’s just a photo. Most laundry is done in cold water, unless you wear a lot of whites.

    “Most laundry is done in cold water,” really ? I am a single bloke living alone I do all my washing in a machine. The lowest temp setting is 30oc which is not cold.

Here’s a better idea, You take you kids Playstation x or whatever gaming platform they use and you confiscate the mains power lead. You add a charger to the exercise bike and inform them that 30 minutes peddling will give them an hours play time. ! Hows that ? 🙂

I think it has great possibilities. Similar to old Sputnik Hand washer-I know someone who still uses one. You put water in manually and drain manually – there must be a place to do this ;and you could pedal backwards no doubt to reverse the rotation.When the load is washed you put in clean water and rinse etc 🙂

I invented that in 1987. A friend helped me hook up a stationary bike to the washer. OK, so maybe it is minor OCD, but the choices on the washer were too limited. They all were. The only way to get exactly what you need, do it yourself. My dad really thought I had finally given in to my madness. We had gone to battle about the microwave he insisted he buy me and my threat to take it to a poor neighborhood and leave it on the sidewalk. He did laugh and back off.
