A Bike Powered Washing Machine

Via Bike Blog NYC, the Mayapedal Washing Machine:

We dig the inclusion of a derailleur to make the washing experience shiftable (apologies to the fixed gear hipsters out there). Based in Guatemala, Mayapedal has welded up a bunch of clever “Bicimáquinas” or bike machines that you check out here.

  1. How is this supposed to work, exactly? It seems to me that the clothes will not agitate, but simply plaster themselves against the barrel wall.

    The idea of pedal power is cool, however, and I suggest it be used in connection with something like http://www.Staber.com/ ?
