If your washing machine or dryer brakes down you might have to resort to this: a peddle-powered washing machine. On the posivtie side is the health benefits – you get a great work out each time you wash your cloths. On the side of irony, washing your clothes means more dirty clothes to wash.
This machine comes with an exercise bike with a lithium-ion battery which collects your energy output as you vigorously pedal away. Your energy is channeled into the front loading machine that cleans the dirty whites. Twenty minutes of sweat gives you one cycle wash without drawing any power from the grid.
We can’t tell if this is a total gimmick or the big brand behind this human powered green-washing-machine is actually for real.
