14-year-old creates washing machine for people who can't afford electricity.

Remya Jose dreams of becoming a doctor, and won't let anything get in her way, which in this case happens to be the dirty laundry – a task that fell to her and her twin sister when their parents fell ill. Instead of complaining like the average teenager, Remya decided to make short work of the daily task by building a washing machine of her own. It swaps out electricity for mechanical power, and offers an affordable alternative for anyone in India willing to try and build one.

After drawing up a basic diagram, Remya's father took it to a nearby automobile workshop. To make sure everything went according to plan, the 14-year-old even paid a visit to the mechanics so she could explain exactly what she wanted.
