If we have to name the most common reason why some people do not exercise, it’s probably the fact that they have very busy schedules. After having a long day at the office and with chores to do at home, it seems squeezing gym time in may not be easy nor possible at all for some individuals.
In case you can relate to that type of scenario, you don’t have to be frustrated anymore. We’ve got some fantastic news for you – you can actually get some exercise done while doing your laundry!
Now you can workout and do laundry at the same time.
Apparently, one innovative Filipino guy has made that possible.
A resident of Davao City in Mindanao, Philippines, Dandy Abdulmalik Vicentino came up with the idea of combining a bicycle with a washing machine – and it’s now getting a lot of attention online.
As Vicentino explained in the video below, he used a “junked exercise bike” for his invention and connected it to a washing machine. Users will then have to pedal the said bike in order to get the washer spinning.
This is ideal for people who want to lose weight and save money as well.
Since this unique washing machine is pedal-powered, users will be able to reduce their electric consumption, too. This is another factor that makes the invention really praiseworthy – especially considering how electricity rates have become extremely costly in our time!
Sounds pretty interesting, huh?
Well you can watch the video demonstration below and see for yourself.
It is indeed a promising invention. With some tweaks and hardware improvements, we bet the Pedal Washing Machine could go places.
Vicentino’s video has since went viral on Facebook and according to him, interested buyers can contact him via the Firm Faith PH page. “Name your price or let’s talk it over,” he said.
