Presenting here a new concept from Yanko Design : the Bike Washing Machine! A bike-powered washing machine! It’s not a new idea but this one goes a bit further and the design is looking great. A battery collects the power you produced during your workout and apparently 20 min biking will be enough for a cold cycle. Another good idea to save power but will it meet the success expected? How the water will be distributed and evacuated. No information on this. Looks really fun though. Wait and see what’s happen in the near future!
