Posted on June 18, 2008

Want to keep fit and get your laundry done at the same time?

A middle school student in GuangDong, China did, and he invented a Bike-Washing Machine to do just that.

The boy bought a used washing machine from a local market and connected the canister to his bicycle.

About an hour and a half later you have completed both a great workout and a few loads of clean laundry.

Perfect way to save time and energy, while at the same time losing weight.

This sounds like a good idea. I'm wasting all my energy trying to keep fit, when that energy could be being utilised.

How about a business idea to run public Laundry and Gym just next door? Pay one door and get paid from another.

Yeah, the kid thought of it...sure. If you're smart enough to figure out how to hook this up you're smart enough to figure out how to get some other chump to ride it. Way to go, Chinese parents!

Now all they need to do is find a Japanese designer who can make this invention space efficient.

That is an awesome idea from such a young guy. My only concern would be getting up the simultaneous motivation to not only do laundry (ick) but also ride a stationery bike in your laundry room. Maybe a TV would be a nice addition for us lazy Americans, though I suppose you'd need to power that, too!

Civilization and progress lost-and-found in a sitcom! Why not connect all other appliances too? Just plug a generator and a set of batteries. Fighting global warming one TV set at a time!

I remember visiting my cousin in China when I was 15 years old. She had to use a crank for the washing machine. She had to clear out a space in the living room, move the washing machine from the wall into the room (to get more space), and cranked for 30 minutes to do a small load of laundry. No wonder she us so thin!

Now THAT is optimizing resources! You loose weight and do the laundry, I don't know why anyone thought of that before...
