Pedal-Powered Washing Machine

Pedal-Powered Washing Machine

Within the larger conversation happening around sustainable energy, there is noticeable push towards small scale, consumer-facing products to help solve our future resource needs. Haier recently displayed one such innovation – a human-powered washing machine.

Gizmag explains how it works:

An exercise bike with a lithium-ion battery that collects energy as you pedal is hard wired to the front loading machine. When you pedal, you power the machine. Twenty minutes effort is said to give you one cold cycle wash without drawing power from the grid.
